Whats the difference between a Quality Dimension, a Quality Metric, an Evaluation Metric, a Metric Parameter and the Quality of a Candidate?

with one comment

A while ago I received the following question in my mailbox, and I figured I would reply through my blog, since it might be interesting to the ‘general public’ 🙂

The question is as follows:

While I was reading chapter 4 of your PhD thesis, I wandered, what ‘s the difference between the following terms?

  1. Quality Dimension
  2. Quality Metric
  3. Evaluation Metric
  4. Metric Parameter
  5. Quality of Candidate

I think I’ve confused while embracing the different concepts of your ETM framework.

If you please, show me clear differences between them, as I think for somehow one can be an alternative to another in different context(s).

PhD thesis LaTeX style for TU Eindhoven

with 5 comments

Hi all,

Writing a thesis, being it a Master or PhD one, works best using LaTeX (unless you like fixing layout and referencing issues in M$ Word).
However, finding or creating a good style is sometimes difficult. And often you just want to use one you just saw. Well, apparently some of you like the style I used for my Masters PhD thesis. So, I want to share this with all of you.

In my opinion it is a good clean style for any dissertation, although this one has a titlepage specifically for TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) use, but is easily adaptable to any institution.

Please find below the LaTeX files needed to jump-start your own dissertation in LaTeX (you will start with 52 pages without having typed a single word!).

If you use this style, please let us know this in the comments. And when you’re done, be sure to share a link with us so we can be proud with you!

Also, if you have applied any improvements, please share them too, so others can benefit.

But most of all: have fun writing!!!

You are free to use and adjust this style without referencing (although it would be nice of course 😉 ).However, this also means that we can not provide any support to customize the style to your needs or help you solve any LaTeX issues (there are many, many resources for that to be found online).
