Does Testing Measure a Students Knowledge?

- ... Scrutiny in this case is essential as personality measures should be developed to be more accurate and trustworthy as research progresses. Also, Pittenger (2005) suggested that, although Capraro and Capraro’s (2002) findings are somewhat acceptable in terms of the MBTI’s reliability, the test itself and its creators claim that personality types are extremely stable, which contradicts the reliability scores as they do vary between the different dichotomies and between different studies. Opposed to reliability, validity is concerned with what we want to measure opposed to what we are measuring in reality (Carducci, 2009, p.45)....   [tags: Psychometrics, Validity]

Shakespeare's Interpretation of Women in "Measure for Measure"

- Shakespeare's interpretation of women in Measure for Measure very much reflects society's opinion of women at the time, which was that men have more freedom and should be given more respect that women. The society of the time was a patriarchal one, where a male God was the ultimate leader, and below him came the king, then the nobles. However, although the society gave men more rights than women, Measure for Measure demonstrates that they also had more responsibilities. This is shown through the situation with Claudio and Juliet, as although they are both equally to blame for Juliet's pregnancy, it is Claudio facing the death penalty....   [tags: European Literature]
