The Wiley Handbook of Psychometric Testing: A Multidisciplinary Reference on Survey, Scale and Test Development

October 14, 2018

Over the past hundred years, psychometric testing has proved to be a valuable tool for measuring personality, mental ability, attitudes, and much more. The word ‘psychometrics' can be translated as ‘mental measurement'; however, the implication that psychometrics as a field is confined to psychology is highly misleading.

This electronic handbook brings together contributions from leading psychometricians in a diverse array of fields around the globe. Each provides accessible and practical information about their specialist area in a three-step format covering historical and standard approaches, innovative issues and techniques, and practical guidance on how to apply the methods discussed. Throughout, real-world examples help to illustrate and clarify key aspects of the topics covered.
