This chapter introduces reliability within the framework of the classical test theory (CTT) model, which is then extended to generalizability (G) theory. In Chapter 7, we’ll learn about reliability within the item response theory model. These theories all involve measurement models, sometimes referred to as latent variable models, which are. Factor analysis as well as the major extensions and alternatives to classical test theory, generalizability theory and item response theory (latent trait theory), are briefly introduced. This course is intended to equip students to read the literature in their own substantive areas more critically, to use tests more intelligently in research.

The authors' development of IRT builds on the foundations of classical test theory, nonlinear factor analysis, and generalized linear models. Using these foundational concepts, the authors then explain IRT models, estimation via maximum likelihood, item characteristic curves, and information functions. Classical test theory is a body of related psychometric theory that predict outcomes of psychological testing such as the difficulty of items or the ability of test-takers. Generally speaking, the aim of classical test theory is to understand and improve the reliability of psychological tests.. Classical test theory may be regarded as roughly synonymous with true score theory.

Item-response theory (IRT) appears to be the currently prevailing paradigm within the psychometric theory. However, this is only partially reflected in the psy-chometric practice: with an important exception of educational measurement, most psychological measuring instruments still appear to be based on the classical test theory (CTT). Classical test theory is a traditional quantitative approach to testing the reliability and validity of a scale based on its items. In the context of PRO measures, classical test theory assumes that each observed score (X) on a PRO instrument is a combination of an underlying true score (T) on the concept of interest and unsystematic (i.e Cited by:

This book is an EXCELLENT graduate-level treatment of measurement and test theory. Crocker and Algina have a very readable style that makes test theory and the accompany statistics nonthreatening.

Their chapters are all strongly grounded in the history of psychometrics and the reader always has a sense of how various approaches and theories Cited by: Classical test theory may be regarded as roughly synonymous with true score theory.

The term "classical" refers not only to the chronology of these models but also contrasts with the more recent psychometric theories, generally referred to collectively as item response theory, which sometimes bear the appellation "modern" as in "modern latent.

Classical Test Theory (CTT), also known as the true score theory, refers to the analysis of test results based on test scores. The statistics produced under CTT include measures of item difficulty, Cited by: 2.

The measurement models better known and used currently are mentioned, the Classical Test Theory (CTT), and Item Response Theory (IRT), including the Rasch Model. "Psychological Testing by Theresa J. Kline is an accessible, easy-to-read book that effectively communicates the current concepts, trends, and controversies in the field of psychological testing.

Readers are provided with an in-depth analysis of psychometrics in a format that will keep their attention and that they will be able to relate to the significance of psychological testing across.

Measurement is the process of quantifying the characteristics of a person or object. Theories of measurement help to explain measurement results (i.e., scores), thereby providing a rationale for how they are interpreted and treated mathematically and statistically.

Classical test theory (CTT) is a measurement theory used primarily in psychology, education, and related fields. This idea and a set of procedures that implement it are the essence of Classical Test Theory (CTT).

This chapter examines underlying principles of CTT and how test developers use it to achieve measurement, as they have defined this by: Objective.

The conceptual foundations, assumptions, and extensions of the basic premises of CTT have allowed for the development of some excellent psychometrically sound scales.

Credit for solving this problem goes to Einstein who, inrefined and extended the ideas Planck used to explain the black body radiation spectrum and assumed that 'light consists of quanta of energy, called photons'.

Classical test analysis also typically includes a measure for the reliability of scores (i.e., Cronbach Alpha) and difficulty of the test.

Classical test theory (CTT) has been widely used in the development, characterization, and sometimes selection of outcome measures in clinical trials.
