Ordinal Item Response Theory
Mokken Scale Analysis



June 2011 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Ordinal Item Response Theory is volume 169 in the SAGE Series "Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences" (QASS). Ordinal Item Response Theory is referred to throughout many other QASS titles and fills a gap between the more classical topics of undimensional scaling, test theory, principal component and factor analysis. In addition, this volume also discusses parametric item response theory and latent class analysis. This monograph is less technical than many books on the market and is ideal for introductory courses in social science measurement.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
