Product Overview

Measurement models developed by Georg Rasch are renowned in the social sciences. In this introduction, the focus is on the simple logistic model, which is one of the most elementary and commonly used. The author explains the general principles behind the models, and demonstrates their procedures for measurement. Comparisons are made with other more widely-used models. Throughout the text, an example from a personality inventory is used to provide continuity as the statistical arguments are presented and procedures explained. *Author: Andrich, David/ Andrich, David *Series Title: Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences *Series Number: 68 *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 96 *Publication Date: 1988/03/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.36 x 5.40 x 0.22 inches

From the Publisher
Editors Note Examines the use of Rasch measurement models in the social sciences. This lucid introduction first focuses on general principles, so the applications and algebra of the model can be readily understood. Andrich then connects Rasch models to common procedures for social science measurement. Avoiding polemics, Andrich's presentation allows comparison between the Rasch models and other, better known measurement approaches. Rasch Models For Measurement concentrates on the simple logistic model, the most elementary and commonly used of the Rasch models. This excellent introduction uses one example from personality inventory throughout to provide continuity as the procedures and statistical arguments are explained. Essential reading for all researchers and students who use measurement models. "A valuable asset to those of us who are concerned with teaching measurement issues. . . . My only quibble is that we have had to wait so long for what is a clear, concise and very approachable introduction to a fairly complex area. . . . For its size this volume covers a lot of ground and it would seem to be an ideal book for postgraduate students with a special interest in psychometrics and professional psychologists who are concerned with measurement and assessment. . . . An ideal primer." --The Statistician "Rasch Models for Measurement is a concise introduction to the general principles, philosophy, and methods that underlie the approach to measurement developed by Georg Rasch (1960/1980). This book is a welcome addition to the Sage series on Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences, or (as my students describe them) "the little green books." This series introduces methodological issues for individuals with limited backgrounds in statistics and mathematics, and Andrich has provided a useful resource for these individuals. . . . This book can be recommended for graduate students and colleagues who want a basic understanding of the Rasch model." --Applied Psychological Measurement
