Compare and contrast the provided test data from two instructors teaching the same course who created their own evaluation tools. The course is in a prelicensure, associate degree nursing program, and based on a lesson on diabetes. There are 10 students in each class. Determine if reliability and validity between the two datasets exists. Be sure to defend your stance using the appropriate multiple disciplinary databases (e.g., education, nursing, or psychology databases). At the graduate level, you should be able to determine the amount of content needed to fully defend your stance.
