Summary:
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.

Abstract:

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. Scientists and practitioners from virtually every conceivable discipline now use and analyze data collected from questionnaires, scales, and tests developed from psychometric principles, and the field is vibrant with new and useful methods and approaches.

This 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. The aim is to fill a gap for information about psychometric testing that is neither too basic nor too technical and specialized, and will enable researchers&apos practitioners, and graduate students to expand their knowledge and sills in the area.

Provides comprehensive coverage of the field of psychometric testing, from designing a test through writing items to constructing and evaluating scales.

Takes a practical approach, addressing real issues faced by practitioners and researchers.

Provides basic and accessible mathematical and a statistical foundations of all psychometric techniques discussed.

Provides example software code to help readers implement the analysis discussed.

Paul Irwing, PhD, is joint chair of The Psychometrics at Work Research Group at Manchester Business School. He is a world-leading psychometrician with over 30 years of experience in research specializing in individual differences and quantifiable measurement through psychometrics.

Tom Booth, PhD, is Senior Lecturer in Quantitative Research Methods, Department of Psychology, University of Edinburgh. His research involves the application and evaluation of psychometric tools in a variety of applied areas, from organizational psychology to epidemiology.

David J. Hughes, PhD, is Lecturer in Organisational Psychology at Manchester Business School. His research interests cover three main area: the theory and measurement of individual differences, individual differences at work, and individual differences in financial behavior --Book Jacket.
