A Training Workshop on ‘Scale Development in Social Sciences’ was held from 10 to 14 June, 2019, at Bengaluru. It was organised by the CRISP http://crispindia.org in collaboration with SRS- NDRI ( http://www.ndri.res.in ) MANAGE ( http://www.manage.gov.in/ and AESA ( https://www.aesanetwork.org/ ) to equip scientists, academicians and research scholars from extension, economics, sociology, psychology, business management, and other related disciplines with critical skills in developing, using and obtaining copyright for scales.
The workshop followed a ‘nuts and bolts’ approach by covering all aspects of psychometrics along with adequate hands-on experience on specific techniques. A group of 20 participants with diverse educational and professional expertise attended this workshop. The group was comprised of senior researchers and young scholars and this facilitated a constant flow of knowledge and wider sharing of experience.
