program evaluation allows for what?
allows for the determination of whether a program has successfully achieved its objectives
what is program evaluation often related to?
the average of a population
refers to the consistency or repeatability of test scores, data, or observations
when is a test considered reliable?
if measurements are the same each time the test is administered to the same individual
the extent to which a test measures what is proposes to measure. a trait that is possessed by the instrument or test being used
with a dart board as an example: what would be the reliability? what would be the validity?
reliability: refers to the "clustering" or "spread" in reference to the placement of each dart thrown
validity: refers to the placement of each dart thrown relative to an established standard or intended target (distance from the 'bull's eye')
