Evidence Snapshot

While evidence did not support the original hypothesized structure of the measure (version 1.0), there is promising evidence in support of the empirically derived structure of the measure (version 2.0). We are somewhat confident in the stability of the evidence, although the small sample size and convenience sampling may produce results that are unique to this dataset. We preliminarily recommend version 2.0 of this measure for its specified purpose(s) with attention to the additional recommended revisions. Testing with a larger, representative sample is necessary
