representations such as maps, plans, and models are very useful tools for providing measurement data and for showing the relationships between measurements in a given situation. Students use a scale ratio to make the transition from scaled to actual measurements, and select an appropriatescale to use in...

Knowledge of the objectives can help in identifying and selecting ERP alternatives, and beyond that, the objectives indicate how outcomes of an ERP system execution must be measured and what kinds of uncertainties should be considered in the ERP success analysis. Then, the explicit definition of...

The extent to which observations are structured may vary.
If the researcher knows in advance what is to be observed, he can structure observations by formulating operational definitions and devise a classification system and measurementscales.

The goal of some appraisal forms is to make the process easy and consistent for all employees. Ideally, the form focuses on behavioral performance and results to reduce bias and increase objectivity. The graphic rating scale is an example of...
