"Trevor Bond has worked with the leading Rasch theoreticians for over 10 years. Since 1992, he has advised
developmentalists and teachers on how to conduct and interpret Rasch analysis on their own data. He chaired the
Rasch development symposium at The Growing Mind Piaget Centenary Conference in Geneva in 1996. At each of
these occasions, Dr. Bond was asked to recommend a suitable text for those who wish to learn more about Rasch
analysis. Unfortunately, the books published to date were written by statisticians and require significant knowledge
of statistics, not easily accessible to practicing researchers. This lack of a suitable book is the driving force behind
this book. The goals of this authored volume are:
* to present an accessible overview of the basic properties and principles of Rasch analysis, that does not require a great deal of sophisticated statistical background.
* to demonstrate how Rasch analysis can be applied to a number of generic problems encountered by psychologists and educators.
* to prepare the reader for performing their own Rasch analyses and interpretation of results. The market for this book includes psychological researchers and educators."
