The ideal of an integral and problem focused metrological pluralism suggests that we reflect
on the way we use developmental metrics, in order to make principled decisions about which
types of metrics are appropriate for which purposes. In order to do this we need to build validity
and reliability profiles for existing metrics and begin to dialogue about the implications of what
we have to work with. This rigorous reflection on metrics should be supplemented with
reflections on the problem-spaces we face. What are we trying to do with the metrics we have?
For example, it is likely that clinicians and coaches need different metrics than researchers, while
educators require measures that differ from those used by organizational consultants.
