Statistical Theories of Mental Test Scores

Frederic M. Lord
Melvin R. Novick

Published 2008

One of the most important books in the history of psychometrics has been virtually unavailable to scholars and students for decades. A gap in the archives of modern test theory is now being filled by the release in paperback for the first time of the classic text, Statistical Theories of Mental Test Scores, by the late and honored statisticians and psychometricians, Frederic M. Lord and Melvin R. Novick. No single book since 1968 when Lord & Novick first appeared has had a comparable impact on the practice of testing and assessment. Information Age Publishing is proud to make this classic text available to a new generation of scholars and researchers.

"This comprehensive and authoritative work is a major contribution to the literature of test theory. Without doubt it is destined to become a classic in the field." Maurice Tatsuoka
