Overview

The measurement practice section illustrates the application of objective measurement methods to personality psychology, a sociological study of school environment, personnel management, pain research, motor performance, and curriculum development. It emphasizes practice over theory, showing how measurement practice contributes valuable perspectives on substantive theory. The measurement theory section describes the development of new measurement models that extend objective measurement into learning contexts, rank-ordered data, and multidimensional profiles composed of subtests. These are complemented by a study of the use of objective measurement to examine the construct validity of items, and an exploration of the impact of text anxiety and item order on measurements. The final section examines recent developments in mathematical programming techniques applied to test assembly, parameter estimation and generalizability theory.

Booknews
Nineteen chapters selected (with the exception of two) from the 41 papers presented at the Fifth International Objective Measurement Workshop (IOMW5) held March 1989, Berkeley, California, some having been considerably revised, discuss applications, theory, philosophy, and history. Applications are discussed in a variety of fields: personality psychology, school environment, personnel management, pain research, motor performance, and curriculum development. New measurement models and mathematical and statistical aspects are also addressed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
