History (Evidence Rating Element)

An event that takes place between the pretest (data collected prior to the treatment beginning) and the posttest (data collected after the treatment ends) that has nothing to do with the treatment but may impact observed outcomes.  History is a potential threat to Internal Validity. See Program Review and Rating from Start to Finish for more information.
