An Introduction To the Logic of Psychological Measurement by Joel Michell download in pdf, ePub, iPad

This research describes some of the similarities and differences between additive conjoint measurement a type of fundamental measurement and the Rasch model. Furthermore, it is shown that psychometrics has avoided investigating this hypothesis through endorsing an anomalous definition of measurement.

However the results of such statistical tests are too simplistic, and difficult to interpret. Conjoint measurement theory applies in circumstances where a dependent attribute is a function of two independent attributes e. Then, we describe a class of measurement models, based on Rasch modeling, which we see as being particularly favourable to the development of cognitive theories. We gain or lose confidence in case study results when similar case studies are conducted on other projects. The variables in this study, which include counts of defects, deltas, and the size of the different project groups, match those used in the Apache study.

My thesis is that psychometricians are not only uncritical of an issue basic to their discipline but that, in addition, they have constructed a conception of quantification that disguises this. In this way, the failure to test this key hypothesis is not only ignored but disguised.

In order to

Some of the results of the collection-specific operationalization of the framework are reported. In order to circumvent difficulties that can be realistically imposed by this data dependence, this research formalizes new non-parametric item response models. It seems that there are many similarities between the two frameworks, however, their differences are nontrivial.

Some of the results
