Introduction to Measurement TheoryIntroduction to Measurement Theory bridges the gap between texts that offer a mathematically rigorous treatment of the statistical properties of measurement and ones that discuss the topic in a basic, cookbook fashion. Without overwhelming novices or boring the more mathematically sophisticated, the authors effectively cover the construction of psychological tests and the interpretation of test scores and scales; critically examine classical true-score theory; and explain theoretical assumptions and modern measurement models, controversies, and developments. Practical applications, examples, and study questions facilitate a better understanding of the uses and limitations of common measures of test reliability and validity and how to perform the basic item analysis necessary for test construction. |

LibraryThing Review
User Review - foreyer - LibraryThingThis was one of the books I had to read to ramp up on Psycometrics (educational exam/test analysis and statistics). I read about 6/7 chapters and read at least 2 of them 3 times. This is actually well written and easy to follow (compared to other math books). Read full review
