NUR 513 - Research Measurement
3 credits ( 3 didactic hours )
- NUR 505, 506, 507, 510, 511, and 512
- The emphasis of the course is on the principles of measurement and their application to problems in health research. The course will address (a) the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of measurement, (b) operational and practical issues of translating theoretical constructs to empirical measures, (c) quantitative approaches to assessing and validating research measures, and (d) application of measures in relevant study designs. The course is thus designed to cover conceptual, methodological and substantive areas of research measurement, with an emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving, and hands-on application.
