Every purchase of the online ARTIC Scale is for use with a single program evaluation/study. Discounts will be available for purchasers to do more than one or a series of program evaluations/studies.

In general, single program evaluation/study is characterized by:  1) use of the same ARTIC version (ARTIC-45 or ARTIC-10) across time points; 2) a question that the program evaluation/study seeks to answer that is consistent across all time points; and 3) a group of respondents that share consistent characteristics (i.e., same agency or school system, same set of departments or schools, same job roles) across all time points.
