Educational Measurement, Fourth Edition

Educational Measurement, Fourth Edition (2006). National Council on Measurement in Education, Robert L. Brennan (ed.).

From the publisher:
"Educational Measurement has been the bible in its field since the first edition was published by ACE in 1951. The importance of this fourth edition of Educational Measurement is to extensively update and extend the topics treated in the previous three editions. As such, the fourth edition documents progress in the field and provides critical guidance to the efforts of new generations of researchers and practitioners. Edited by Robert Brennan and jointly sponsored by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the National Council on Measurement in Education, the fourth edition provides in-depth treatments of critical measurement topics, and the chapter authors are acknowledged experts in their respective fields.

Educational measurement researchers and practitioners will find this text essential, and those interested in statistics, psychology, business, and economics should also find this work to be of very strong interest."
Seriously, while this edition is a bit pricey, it is likely to be even more important to the field of psychometrics and educational measurement than the previous editions. To order, visit the publisher online.
