Highlights include:

    1. The contributions to instrument scoring from the fields of psychophysics, intelligence testing, scaling, attitude measurement, and classical and modern test theories
    2. The use of scoring approaches in medical research and a brief introduction into the mathematics that constitute scoring
    3. Potential consequences of different approaches to scoring
