About this item

Arguing that Bayesian approaches offer distinct and profound advantages in achieving many of the goals of psychometrics, Levy and Mislevy present a Bayesian perspective on psychometrics as an alternative to conventional approaches that is not only viable but in many respects preferable. This is a statistics book, they warn, but one where the focus is on concepts and ideas surrounding psychometrics, assessment, and Bayesian inference. Among their topics are conceptual issues in Bayesian inference, Markov chain Monte Carlo estimation, canonical Bayesian psychometric modeling, item response theory, and latent class analysis.
