Our group utilized three tests for our project and these were

Measurement - process of obtaining test scores.
- methodology for analyzing the scores to enhance interpretation.
In this course, we use statistics:
To describe a set of scores. To standardize scores.
To estimate validity and reliabi

Determining Relationships between Scores
Each subject must have a score on two variables; an X and a Y score. Coordinates of X and Y are plotted.
