Objective Measurement: Theory Into Practice, Volume 5

Edited by Mark Wilson and George Engelhard, Jr., 2000

From the Greenwood Publishing Group website:

This volume presents original research concerned with the practice of measurement, and the theory of measurement. The words in the title, "objective measurement" indicate that chapters are all related to a particular approach to the philosophy and practice of measurement. By objective measurement, we mean that, in a situation where a certain class of stimuli (for example, items) are being used to measure certain individuals.

The chapters in this book originated in presentations made at the International Objective Measurement Workshop (IOMW9) devoted to exploring the interface between theory and practice in measurement. Based on the complicated and interesting problems that arise in quite specific contexts, they represent some of the most original and exciting developments in the field of measurement today.
