What are all of the types of validity- criterion validity and construct validity along with examples?

Construct validity is also internal validity. I make up a test of intelligence - does it REALLY measure intelligence? Or maybe it’s just measuring SES because rich people have more opportunity etc.
Criterion validity refers to our test being able to give a score that accurately reflects the abilities it says it measures. A test of engineering should be able to identify people who can design bridges and buildings.
