Measurement is crucial to evaluation.  This webinar will discuss some conceptual issues linked to the construction and validation of appropriate measures that are useful for evaluation. In particular, the panel will discuss issues around what to measure, how to measure, how to use existing measures, and how to construct new measures with specific examples concerning the measurement of child development in the early years. The discussion will focus on new data and measures collected in Ghana and Colombia.
