    Likewise, it is clear that the authors worked to make the reader equally comfortable in learning about what those electrodes can tell us about message processing. As such, Psychophysiological Measurement and Meaning will likely become a useful aid in training those who . The concern about the meaning of mathematical symbols (numbers) is a concern about measurement. By definition any set of rules for assigning numbers to attributes of objects is measurement. Not all measurement systems are equally useful in dealing with the world, however, and it is the function of the scientist to select those that are more useful.

Why Are Measurement, Assessment and Evaluation Important in Education. According to educator and author, Graham Nuthall, in his book The Hidden Lives of Learners, "In most of the classrooms we have studied, each student already knows about % of what the teacher is teaching." The goal of data-driven instruction is to avoid teaching students.

In this pioneering study, the authors deal with the nature and theory of meaning and present a new, objective method for it’s measurement which they call the semantic differential.
