Estimating the Polyserial Correlation Coefficient.
Bedrick, Edward J.; Breslin, Frederick C.
Psychometrika, v61 n3 p427-43 Sep 1996
Simple noniterative estimators of the polyserial correlation coefficient are developed by exploiting a general relationship between the polyserial correlation and the point polyserial correlation to give extensions of the biserial estimators of K. Pearson (1909), H. E. Brogden (1949), and F. M. Lord (1963) to the multicategory setting. (SLD)
