Measurement theory in action: case studies and exercises
Measurement Theory in Action: Case Studies and Exercises comprises twenty modules, each corresponding to entire chapters in typical measurement theory texts. The modules begin with introductory concepts and a review of statistics; progress through conceptions of content, criterion-related, and construct validation, validity generalization and test-bias; and conclude with more advanced topics such as multiple regression and item response theory (IRT). Each module is composed of an overview, case studies, exercises, Internet references, and suggested further readings. An extensive glossary of key terms is also provided for quick reference.
Measurement Theory in Action is ideal as a supplemental text for any measurement course across the social sciences, and especially in departments of psychology and education. Professional researchers and academics in need of a quick refresher on the application of measurement theory will also find this an invaluable reference.
An Instructor's Resources CD containing exercises and assignments is also available (ISBN 1412906180)
