Abstract

Statement of the Problem: The problem, the construction of a rating scale for student evaluation of college teachers, had both "pure" and "applied" psychological research aspects. The "pure" facet of the problem was to develop, apply, and test the effectiveness of certain "forced-choice" principles of rating scale construction. The "applied" aspect was to construct in instrument useful to college teachers in the practice of their profession. Quotation marks are used for these terms to indicated the artificial nature of the dualism applied.
