A Quote by Zachary Stein, Katie Heikkinen on metrics


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.
