Levels of measurement.
There are four different levels of measurement: nominal, ordinal, interval and ratio. These different levels of measurement are useful in business.
Nominal level data is data that can only be classified...
practical approach to problems. What position would you take and why?
With so many ways to approach a question or a situation I think sometimes one may over think how to address certain situations or scenarios without theory. Then again I wonder why are some answers given not right if I applied a certain...
tool that may assist the teacher for decision-making in grouping students in classes, to measure each individual student’s understanding and knowledge, and to some extent it could measure the effectiveness of instruction and learning. In order to attain a concrete result from the measurement of one’s...

Measurement is the process of assigning numbers or labels to persons, objects, or events in accordance with specific rules for representing quantities or qualities of attributes.
The 4 types of measurement scales are:

“Basic concepts of educational measurement and assessment.”
Measurement, Evaluation and Assessment, this are the three important things that a learner undergoes for the facilitator to determine a valid and reliable result of achievement. But what is the difference of the three? Can we really...

Any variables that could also affect the dependent variable. Confounding variables should be controlled in a fair test.

The variable you measure, to see how it is affected by the independent variable.

“observations” is taken to include measurements.
Validity is the measure of confidence that can be placed in a
conclusion. After deciding upon a dependant variable to vary within
the experiment, the method of measurement should also be known, the
measurement taken should be valid e.g. the volume of oxygen...
an instrument is not reliable over time, it cannot be valid, as results can vary depending upon when it is administered. An instrument can be neither reliable nor valid, reliable and not valid or both reliable and valid. However, an instrument must be reliable in order to be valid” (Cooper, 2011). Making...
define what reliability of measurement is. A measurement is reliable to the extent that it provides a consistent set of scores to represent an attribute. In the majority of the case perfect reliability is never achieved because of the errors that the distinct types of measurement have. If we test the same...

endurance as you will only be able to do this test depending on your aerobic endurance. It may be unreliable in some cases, as it has to be done under strict conditions otherwise the individual whom is being tested may get a higher score than he should do. There are published VO2max score equivalents for...
probably something wrong with my measurement tools and my findings aren’t very useful. For example, if you wanted to measure your weight and the scales that you used varied 5-20 pounds everything time you stepped on it (within the same day) this scale would not be reliable and therefore not useful if you...
reliability and validity can be examined and achieved over the entire selection process.
Validity in general is “the accuracy in measurement and it must measure what it purports to measure” (Cooper, Robertson and Tinline, 2003, pp 49)
Different types of validity can be considered...
important in quantitative research and may refer to:
The statistical reliability of a set of data
The experimental reliability of an experiment
Data reliability, a property of some disk arrays in computer storage
Reliability engineering ensures a system will be reliable when operated in a specified manner
