2. Briefly describe the importance of reliability and validity in relation to data collection and analysis of outcomes.
3. What is the documented reliability (state the value) of the tool the clinicians selected for the project discussed in the case study? Based on this value what do you conclude about the tool?
4. Describe why it is necessary to code the collected data prior to statistical analysis. Provide an example of coding translation for one of the demographic data points listed in the case study.
