Bayesian Psychometric Modeling
Roy Levy，Robert J. Mislevy
This is a statistics book, but one where the focus is on concepts and ideas surrounding psychometrics, assessment, and Bayesian inference. Mathematical terminology and expressions abound, and although we do some mathematics of probability and statistics, our aim is to do so at a level that illuminates concepts. Along the way we do some history, etymology, and philosophy. Our forays into the first two are decidedly of the armchair variety. For the last, we believe we are on more rigorous footing, although we do not propose that this is a comprehensive account of the issues involved.
