The present study was undertaken to validate a portion of Inter national Association for Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) Mathematics Achievement Test in Pakistan, The items of the test were matched with the curriculum applied in schools. A set of relevant items were translated into Urdu and administered to an ad-hoc sample of 75 female students of grades 6 to 10. The results showed-that the mean scores of the students increased with their respective grades and the test generally differentiated between the students of various grades. The indices of correlation between marks in school examinations and IEA test were generally positive though low; only five out of twenty correlations reached significance levels. These results can be taken as an indication of the validity of this test for Pakistani female students
