MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION: INTRODUCTORY CONCEPTS

DR. PROKASH BISWAS

Abstract

In the fields of behavioral sciences, especially in education and psychology, measurement and evaluation perform important roles. Emphasis, in the present time, is given much on practical fields than on theories. Various streams of behavioral sciences tend to study human behaviors along with issues and problems associated with it. The fields of education and psychology undertake greater initiatives to measure such behaviors of human being. Again, for conducting the teaching-learning process as per the curriculum in educational institutions, a teacher has to follow a well-structured programme. In this respect the teacher has to adopt a specific teaching methodology. However, when the teacher wants to know the effectiveness of his teaching strategy, progress of the students, to what extent the predetermined objectives are achieved, individual achievement of students and some other related information, he/she has to take resort to two processes --- measurement and evaluation.
