personnel, program managers, and researchers.

This book provides a thorough presentation of instrument
construction, from conception to development and pre-testing of
items, formatting the instrument, administration, and, finally,
data management and presentation of the findings. Throughout
the book, the authors emphasize how to create an   instrument

have included guidelines for reviewing and revising the

how to work effectively with stakeholders such as instruments
designers, decision-makers, agency personnel, clients, and raters
or respondents.
