Read the Series Editor's Note by Todd D. Little
Read a Q & A with Deborah L. Bandalos, our September 2018 Author of the Month!
“My students found this text readable and informative when I taught three semesters of psychometrics using successive draft chapters. From an instructor's perspective, it is a pleasure to teach from a textbook that is up to date and also sufficiently comprehensive and detailed. Bandalos's book earns its place as a worthy successor to classic psychometrics texts from decades past. I highly recommend it as both a text and a reference.”

—Keith A. Markus, PhD, Department of Psychology, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, The City University of New York

“Highly readable—the statistical and measurement concepts are described so clearly that even students who think they hate math should be able to grasp the fundamentals. The writing style adds a personal touch to the technical content. Additional strengths are examples from a wide variety of disciplines, the breadth and depth of content coverage, and the step-by-step derivations of mathematical equations.”

—Lihshing Leigh Wang, PhD, Quantitative and Mixed Methods Research Methodologies Program, College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services, University of Cincinnati

“This text is perfect for psychometrics courses for clinical graduate students, and is also a great introductory text for those who plan to become researchers. It provides equations and explains them for students with varying backgrounds in mathematics. This book meets my needs! It covers the more complex topics that I teach (generalizability theory, item response theory) with sufficient technical detail, but does so in a way that is accessible to most graduate students.”

—Marcus Boccaccini, PhD, Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program, Sam Houston State University

“A pleasure to read. Effective examples show me that the author really knows the information, and better yet, is able to communicate it well. Many tests and measurement texts are more successful in boring students to death, rather than teaching them, but not this one! It covers much of the material I teach in my course.”

—John Wallace, PhD, Department of Psychological Science, Ball State University

“Presents a thorough explanation of measurement theory and how it applies to test development in the educational, cognitive, and affective domains. Because of its practicality and comprehensiveness, this text will be extremely useful to any student or faculty member interested in measurement theory.”

—Scott L. Graves Jr., PhD, Department of Counseling, Psychology, and Special Education, Duquesne University
