systematic procedure to collect essential data and these data should be adequate in Quantity and Quality. The instruments those are used to collect the data or new facts are called Research tools. The Research tool plays a vital role not only in collecting primary data, facts but also ensuring accuracy to the research work. The investigator can arrange or select Research tool in two ways, One by selecting already available standardized tools available in the field of study, Standardization refers to proper item selection, high reliability and validity of the instrument to be used in collection of data. And second one is construction of a tool by researcher for present study, constructing of tool for the study needs lot of care and …show more content…
General Science measures knowledge in areas like Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. These subjects constitutes the core subjects in general school achievement.
RELIABILITY COEFFICIENTS by test —retest method with a gap of 14 days on a sample of 100 students the Reliability coefficient of GCAT observed .782 for class VIIth and .754 by split-half method.

VALIDITY COEFFICIENTS present test (GCAT) has been validated against the criteria i.e. Examination Marks, Teacher 's Opinion, Ratings in Interview. Validity Coefficients for GCAT for class VIIth is .683 in terms of Examinations Ranks, .592 in terms of Teacher 's Opinion, .683 in terms of Rating in Interview.

Percentile Norms have been constructed for GCAT on heterogeneous sample of 300 students of both class Vlth & Vllth from Urban and Rural area in age group 10-12 years. The results of norms are tested on Gender and Urban-Rural variable and it was found that Gender difference was not significant in either case i.e. urban or rural. But both samples differed in terms of urban rural variable. All counted corelational values were significant.

al.,2007). Using previously researched scholar articles and books, the authors were able to base their search, follow certain guidelines and compare their results with other results. Using tests such as the Kruskall-Wallis non-parametric test, Nagel et. al.(2007) were able to examine the differences in performance based on each grade group.
All students were required to administer the WJ III COG 4 times, first to a classmate, and then 3 more times to volunteers. The first administration for each student was not considered for the study, which produced 108 testing administrations. These administrations and scores were then examined by advanced level graduate students taught by the same professor. The instrument used for scoring the administrations was a checklist first created by Schermerhorn and Alfonso, and was designed to record the frequency and types of errors made during the administration and scoring of the test (Ramos, 2009, pp. 653).
Define practice standards for recording needed data. What measures will you collect data for and submit? What data elements support those measures? Workflow is an important consideration when compliance is required. Do current workflows support the capture of the required data? Will workflows need to change? Is your AIMS flexible enough to support the needed workflow changes?
d how routine data collected in health and social care informs the planning of care for individuals
Internal validity of this study included data collection process and student personal interest in education. For example, students may have scored in exam because they concern about their own education. Reliability of this study instrument has not been tested. This is the first time this group will have this survey. There is no former survey to use as a standard to see if there are many changes.
The placed students scored higher on course grade, final exam, and cloze test. Placed students have a course grade mean of 2.99. Meanwhile, the continuing students have a course grade mean of 2.04. Placed students mean score of 67.83. In addition, continuing students mean score of 55.31. Places students had a smaller standard deviation for the course grade with .62 (Brown, 1998).
The purpose of this section is to identify the procedure which took place in the process of obtaining data about the demographic norm regarding to the Psychology Achievement Test that was developed; and to describe the demographic norm who participated in this project.
In order to provide the Australia Park Victoria with the appropriate data to solve its current crisis, the most appropriate method of data collection for this research is the qualitative method. According to Gay and Airasian (p 627) qualitative method is the collection of extensive data on various variables over a long time in a natural setting with an aim of acquiring insights not possible using other methods. It involves three different kinds of information collection: direct observation, in depth and open-ended interviews and written documents. Qualitative method involves use of random sampling and structured data collection instruments that fit different experiences. The method also enables the researcher to study the specific area of
The frequency count and percentage will be used to show the profile of the students in terms of gender, scholarship grant and previous mathematics performance. The composite reliability which measures internal consistency should be higher than 0.70. To determine the indicator reliability, the absolute standardized outer loadings should be higher than 0.70. The convergent validity which signifies that a set of indicators represent one and the same underlying constructs, should have an average variance extracted (AVE) higher than 0.50. The discriminant validity based on Fornell-Larcker Criterion, the AVE of each construct should be higher than the construct’s highest squared correlation with any other latent construct. CFA will test the extent to which the theoretical model, the five-factor model corresponding to the five factors of the MSEAQ, adequately represents the covariance
The sources of information from which the author has obtained required data and descriptions of methods used to collect the information
Research methodology is a way how the research is conducted step by step and in order. There are two methods used for data collection which is the primary data and secondary data. These data can be obtained and used many ways. The data is taken and analyzed in advance to produce a result that we can use for research and future reference. This study will relate to the objective we want to achieve and finding the answer to every objective we seek. In order to successfully achieve the objectives we seek, we must know
