Objective: To advance a methodological convention that balances concern for rigor (i.e., internal validity) with equal concern for relevance (i.e., external validity). Method: Conceptual. Results: A rating format for relevance is derived, determined, and applied to cognitive rehabilitation. Implications: The evidentiary base for applying research to practice can be properly determined through expert analysis of multidimensional criteria.
