Measurement, test construction and data analysis resources

Associate Professor Margaret Wu and Professor Ray Adams have kindly made the following publication available for download from www.edmeasurement.com.au - Learning Corner - to people interested in learning more about measurement.
Wu, M. & Adams, R. (2007). Applying the Rasch model to psycho-social measurement: A practical approach. Educational Measurement Solutions, Melbourne.

Chapter One: What Is Measurement?
Chapter Two: An Ideal Measurement
Chapter Three: Developing Tests From IRT Perspectives - Construct And Framework
Chapter Four: The Rasch Model (The Dichotomous Case)
Chapter Five: The Rasch Model (The Polytomous Case)
Chapter Six: Preparing Data For Rasch Analysis
Chapter Seven: Item Analysis Steps
Chapter Eight: How Well Do The Data Fit The Model?

They recommend that you download the Introduction chapter first to see which of the other chapters may be of interest. As a general guide, the first two chapters are useful as an introduction to measurement. Chapter three considers the development of tests from a measurement perspective. Chapters four and five introduces the Rasch model, one particular item response theory model, that is used to analyze measurement data. Chapters six to eight provide guidelines on how to prepare and conduct your own Rasch analysis of test data.
