Please go to the JAM Press Books page on the website and
scroll down to the new books section.
This book is the first in a series of volumes that will include
exemplary psychometric work conducted within the
framework of Rasch measurement theory. Chapters for this
volume were selected from papers presented at the Tenth
and Eleventh International Objective Measurement
Workshops (IOMW), held in New Orleans in April of 2000 and April of 2002. The chapters reflect both practical and
theoretical advances in Rasch measurement. This series continues the tradition of edited volumes that started with the
five volumes of Objective Measurement: Theory Into Practice.
The titles and authors of the twenty-seven chapters are as follows:
