Face validity is the degree to which a metric measures what it is intended to measure, on the face of it. Content validity refers to the extent to which a metric samples the relevant subdimensions of the domain. Construct validity is significant convergence between a new measurement tool and the previously validated measurement of the same construct. CMS = Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
