Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Ostini (psychology, U. of Queensland, Brisbane) and Nering (a US psychometrician) introduce the extension of classical test theory known as item response theory. Explaining that IRT typically involves true/false or correct/incorrect answer choices, they present Rasch and other models for predicting the probability of a particular response. The monograph includes model selection criteria, examples, and a glossary.

Synopsis:

Polytomous Item Response Theory Models provides a unified, comprehensive introduction to the range of polytomous models available within item response theory (IRT).It begins by outlining the primary structural distinction between the two major types of polytomous IRT models.This focuses on the two types of response probability that are unique to polytomous models and their associated response functions, which are modeled differently by the different types of IRT model.Itdescribes, both conceptually and mathematically, the major specific polytomous models, including the Nominal Response Model, the Partial Credit Model, the Rating Scale model, and the Graded Response Model.
