Item response theory for psychologists Author: Mahwah, N. Erlbaum Associates, Multivariate applications book series. English View all editions and formats Summary: The goal of this book is to explain IRT. The book is especially useful to psychologists and social scientists familiar with small-scale cognitive and personality measures, of those who want to use IRT to analyze scales used in their own research.

It is also useful for graduate students and practitioners who want to understand the contemporary, psychometric foundations of the tests they administer. Familiar psychological concepts are used to help explain various IRT principles. The book develops an intuitive understanding of IRT principles through its use of graphical displays and analysis of psychological principles.

Much of the theoretical de- articles published in Quality of Life Research velopment and many of the early applications of continue to use traditional psychometric methods IRT were in the educational sector, and this is almost exclusively.

However, The book is divided into four main parts. First, whereas traditional methods attempt to measure a brief but fascinating historical introduction is each persons average response levels, IRT refor- provided. The second part opens with a chapter mulates the problem in terms of estimating the that contrasts IRT with traditional methods, and probability that a persons response to an item will also explains why it has a number of potential lie in a particular category. To a statistician, this is advantages.

Although many useful points are equivalent to the contrast between linear regres- made, I found this a dicult chapter because at sion and logistic regression.

Mislevy et al. Kanagaraj Chelladurai. Holland and Hoskens developed an approach viewing CTT as a first-order version of IRT and the latter as detailed elaborations of CTT, deriving general results for the prediction of true scores from observed scores, leading to a new view of linking tests not designed to be linked.
