RMT 16:2 Quotations and Notations

"A scientific facet should be regarded as experimentally established only if a properly designed experiment rarely fails to give this level [.05] of significance."
Ronald A. Fisher (1925) Statistical Methods for Research Workers., p. 504.

But popular reporting implies that only one occurrence of .05 significance is enough!

Buy these Rasch books ... before it's too late!

"Objective Measurement: Theory into Practice", Vols. 1-5, the proceedings of International Objective Measurement Workshops since 1989, are now titles of Greenwood Press, www.greenwood.com. But how long will they keep these formerly Ablex books in print?

Each volume contains papers explaining theoretical advances and practical applications of Rasch measurement. Add missing volumes to your own library, or recommend that your academic library buy the set before they disappear off the market. Good sales may even encourage the publishing of Vol. 6!

In Vol. 1, William P. Fisher Jr. discusses Rasch's separability theorem, and Matthew Schulz describes test vertical equating. In Vol. 2, George Engelhard, Jr. discusses invariance, and Mary Lunz explains computer-adaptive testing. In Vol. 3, Ray Adams and Mark Wilson discuss the RCML model, and John Stahl examines rater behavior. In Vols. 4 and 5, ... Oops! They are not on my shelf. I'd better move fast to www.greenwood.com ...

Vols. 1-5. ISBN: 1-56750-182-6 etc. Hardback: $89.95, paperback $32.95 each.
