The Principles of Scale Development

Describe how the principles of scale development relate to the reliability and validity of that scale.

Consider how variables within your research can be operationally defined and accurately measured. Explain what should be considered when constructing scale questions and identify at least two ways that a researcher can develop strong questions or a ”better” measurement scale. Describe the measurement scale you found to measure one of your variables and evaluate its suitability for your research. Explain how your measurement scale is scored and how that score is interpreted.
