Scientific e-Resources, 22 aug. 2018 - 320 pagini
Measurement is the assignment of a number to a characteristic of an object or event, which can be compared with other objects or events. The scope and application of a measurement is dependent on the context and discipline. Measurement is a cornerstone of trade, science, technology, and quantitative research in many disciplines. Historically, many measurement systems existed for the varied fields of human existence to facilitate comparisons in these fields. It focuses on basic issues in measurement and provides a general overview that is not overly specialized. It describes problems in measurement, explains how these problems are approached and solved, surveys a broad range of sources, and provides guidance in how to find, evaluate, and use information about specific tests. This book opens up the broad discipline of Measurement and Evaluation in Psychology and Education with an emphasis on helping students and teachers to understand the concept and theories of the subject and making them expertise in both teaching and learning. The book will also serve as a valuable reference for teachers, teacher-trainees and other processionals at various levels of psychology and education.
