Measurement in Education: Interpreting Achievement Profiles - Uses and Warnings.
Gardner, Eric F.
The interpretation of test profiles, graphic devices which indicate the overall performance of an individual or group of individuals, is discussed. Some uses of profiles are presented, together with a three step profile analysis procedure for interpreting test results. Because profiles are relatively simple to construct and appear to be easily interpreted, considerable emphasis is placed upon possible errors in profile use. (AG)
