According to Ebel & Frisbie (1991):
“Measurement is the process of
assigning numbers to individuals or their
characteristics according to specified rules.”

determining what the actual
outcomes are but it also involves
judgment of desirability of whatever

An objective measurement is one that cannot be
interpreted differently because of numerical
A subjective measurement is one that can
possibly be interpreted differently.
12. The Purposes of Evaluation
According to Oguniyi (1984)
To determine the relative effectiveness of the programme
in terms of students’ behavioural output;
To make reliable decisions about educational planning;
To identify studaents’ growth or lack of growth in acquiring
desirable knowledge, skills, attitudes and societal values;
To help teachers determine the effectiveness of their
teaching techniques and learning materials;
To help motivate students
To identify problems
To predict the general trend in the development of the

15. Advantages of Formative Evaluation
Formative evaluation enables the teacher to:
Draw more reliable inference about his students than an
external assessor, although he may not be as objective as
Identify the levels of cognitive process of his students;
Choose the most suitable teaching techniques and
Determine the feasibility of a programme within the
Determine areas needing modifications or improvement in
the teaching-learning process; and
Determine to a great extent the outcome of summative
evaluation. (ogunniyi, 1984)

start) provides motivation and helps create an appropriate
2. Positive results give the trainees a boost in confidence
and can act as a springboard into subsequent behaviour
change back in the workplace.
3. Trainers can identify those areas where results are
consistently lower and can then consider alternative delivery
methods – helping to develop the training for future events.
4. The results provide a measurable way of determining the
success of the training programme, directly comparable from
one intake to the next.

Formative vs Summative
Norms refers to information regarding the group
performance of a particular reference on a
particular measure for which a person can be
Norms mean standardized score. Scores on
psychological test are most commonly interpreted
by reference to norm that represents the test
performance on standardization sample. Norms
always represent the best performance.
19. Basically there are two purposes of norms:
1. Norms indicate the individual’s relative
standing in the normative sample and thus
permit evaluation of his/her performance in
refer to other persons.
2. Norms provide compared measures that
permitted a direct comparison of the
individual performance on difference test.
Purpose of Norms
20. Types of Norms
1. Local norm: norms based on a relatively
small group of subjects. Ex: pull-up norms
for 7th grade boys at one school.
2. State norms: norms that are representative
of all similar subjects in the state. Ex: fitness
norms for 7th grade boys.
3. National norms: norms that are
representative of all similar subjects in the
united states. Ex: fitness norms for 7th grade
21. Reliability is the degree to which an assessment tool
produces stable and consistent results.
Validity refers to how well a test measures what it is
purported to measure.
