Ordinal Item Response Theory
Mokken Scale Analysis



May 2011 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Ordinal Item Response Theory is volume 169 in the SAGE Series "Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences" (QASS). Ordinal Item Response Theory is referred to throughout many other QASS titles and fills a gap between the more classical topics of undimensional scaling, test theory, principal component and factor analysis. In addition, this volume also discusses parametric item response theory and latent class analysis. This monograph is less technical than many books on the market and is ideal for introductory courses in social science measurement.
