Theories and Applications in Social Measurement
This unit provides a theory of social measurement that unifies
major approaches used in education, psychology and sociology for
the construction of scales for performance assessment,
questionnaires for measuring attitude and preference and choice.
The history, philosophy and mathematics of the theory are
integrated in the process of considering the designs for data
collection, the models for analysis, and the software for
implementing the analyses. Basic principles are emphasized, and it
will be shown how the study of bias, item banking, the study of
profiles, and the like, arise from the same theory. This theory is
based on the simple logistic model of Rasch for dichotomous
responses, it is extended for ordered category responses, and
related to paired comparison response formats including those for
preference and choice data.
