This is an interesting game!

2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

"Some times and places provide a more representative picture of a target than others (e.g. the observation of a child's interaction with her peers at school might provide a more representative picture of her social skills than role playing in the practitioner's office). Some methods provide a better picture than others (e.g. a client's rating of his self-esteem might provide a better picture of his self-esteem than an observation of his overt behavior). Even if a good measurement plan is carried out, to make the best use of the information, it must be recorded in a way that allows it to be used to document (e.g. to funding sources), communicate(e.g. to supervisors and consultants), and monitor client progress in a way that will let you make needed and timely changes in your intervention. Usually this just involves charting the information on a graph as we've illistrated in earlier chapters, and as we discuss in more detail in this chapter."

from Evaluating Practice: Guidelines for the Accountable Professional (fifth edition) by Martin Bloom, Joel Fischer & John G. Orme
This horribly boring excerpt if from the book from my evaluation of practice class which is currently the vein of my existence!

I tag everyone! (like Lisa)
