Introduction to Measurement Theory
Introduction 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.

This 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
