Educational Measurement for Applied Researchers: Theory into by Margaret Wu, Hak Ping Tam, Tsung-Hau Jen

By Margaret Wu, Hak Ping Tam, Tsung-Hau Jen

This publication is a helpful learn for a various workforce of researchers and practitioners who study evaluation facts and build try tools. It makes a speciality of using classical try thought (CTT) and merchandise reaction concept (IRT), that are frequently required within the fields of psychology (e.g. for measuring mental traits), overall healthiness (e.g. for measuring the severity of disorders), and schooling (e.g. for measuring pupil performance), and makes those analytical instruments obtainable to a broader audience. 

Having taught overview topics to scholars from different backgrounds for a few years, the 3 authors have a wealth of expertise in offering academic dimension themes, in-depth ideas and purposes in an obtainable structure. As such, the ebook addresses the desires of readers who use CTT and IRT of their paintings yet don't inevitably have an intensive mathematical heritage. The e-book additionally sheds mild on universal misconceptions in utilizing dimension types, and provides an built-in method of diverse dimension equipment, comparable to contrasting CTT with IRT and multidimensional IRT versions with unidimensional IRT versions. anyplace attainable, comparisons among versions are explicitly made. moreover, the ebook discusses innovations for try equating and differential merchandise functioning, in addition to Bayesian IRT types and believable values utilizing basic examples. 

This e-book can function a textbook for introductory classes on academic size, as supplementary interpreting for complex classes, or as a precious reference advisor for researchers drawn to reading pupil evaluate data.
