Aimed at helping researchers create and evaluate scores better, this reader presents the basic concepts of classical (or 'true score') and modern ('generalizability') test theory. Beginning with a review of reliability and validity issues in measurement, Score Reliability covers score reliability, reliability induction, and reliability generalization. Exercises with sample data are included at the end of each section so readers can demonstrate knowledge of the principles.
