Research

The keys to success are superior decision making and problem solving. Quality research is the foundation that provides this path to excellence. Meaningful Measurement has vast experience in uncovering nuggets of information and presenting them for optimal understanding.

In addition to cutting edge quantitative techniques, Meaningful Measurement creates innovative ways to uncover further information by using qualitative data. Thematic and content analysis of answers to open ended questions yields gold that is rarely mined.

Meaningful Measurement delves far deeper into quantitative data than a classical statistical analysis. Averages and percentages and probabilities and cross-tabs do not tell the whole story. A common research error is the use of statistics as a measurement instead of a description.

To perform any creditable research it is mandatory that the scientific principles of measurement be used to create an appropriate framework.

Meaningful Measurement goes beyond a traditional statistical analysis. Statistics describe a onetime event, and do not reference from year to year, or one situation to another. This is because the results are not calibrated on a straight line, and the numbers are not in common units of measure. Therefore the numbers are not directly comparable.

Remember:
Statistics describe – they do not measure!

Meaningful Measurement techniques create a standardized frame of reference from which to view the piece of the world in which one is interested. A true benchmark is established which then makes any comparison meaningful.

Results are reviewed by a panel of professionals who are experts in the subject areas of investigation. The reports provide clear guidance for making decisions that are objective and fact-driven.

Meaningful Measurement brings unmatched expertise, creativity, and commitment to research and psychometric services. All research studies are customized.
