Accuracy - A statement can be clear not accurate Ex: “Most dogs are over 300 pounds in weight.” Precision - A statement can be both clear and accurate, but not precise Ex: “Jack is overweight.” ( Is Jack one pound of 500 pounds overweight) Relevance - A statement can be clear, accurate, and precise, but not relevant to the question at issue Ex: “Students think the amount of effort they put into a course should be used in raising their grade in a course.” Depth - A statement can be clear, accurate, precise, and relevant, but superficial (lack of depth) Ex: “Just Say No.” Breadth - A line of reasoning may be clear, accurate, precise, relevant, and deep, but lack breadth
