A Japanese translation of Georg Rasch's "Probabilistic Models for Some Intelligence and Attainment Tests" was published in August 31, 1985 by the University of Nagoya Press with permission from the University of Chicago Press, the copyright-owners at that time, through Tuttle-Mori Agency, Inc., Tokyo. The book has 237 pages and ISBN 978-4-930689-35-1.
The Japanese title is "Shinri Tesuto no Kakuritsu Moderu" (Probability Models for Psychological Tests).
The translation was supervised by Yoshio Uchida, Professor at Aichi Gakuin University and Professor Emeritus of the University of Nagoya, Education Department. He specialized in statistics.
The translation was performed by:
Foreword (by Benjamin D. Wright) and Preface: Prof. Motomichi Gotoh, later Professor Emeritus, University of Nagoya.
Chapter 1, 2: Prof. Yoshitaka Makino, later Professor at Chukyo University School of Psychology
Chapter 3, 4: Prof. Toru Masui, later believed to be Chief, Division of Bioresources Research, National Institute of Biomedical Innovation
