In this training, we will explain about measurement dimensions. Next, we will go over various procedures for measuring behavior, including continuous and discontinuous measurement procedures. Then, we will review some indicators of trustworthy measurement and how this can be determined through conducting inter-observer agreement (IOA).
Participants will learn about:
1) Measurement dimensions: Repeatability, temporal extent, and temporal locus; as well as derivative measures and definitional measures
2) Procedures for measuring behavior: Continuous, discontinuous, and permanent product
3) Indicators of trustworthy measurement: Validity, accuracy, and reliability
