An Ordering--Theoretic Method of Multidimensional Scaling of Items. Research Report #33.
Krus, David J.; Bart, William M.
Presented is a method, derived from ordering theory, for the multidimensional scaling of dichotomous item data. The method is said to be related to the methodological multivariate extension of I. Guttman's scalogram analysis developed by C. Coombs and his students. An example is used to compare the data analytic results of the ordering theoretic method and the results of Coombs' method using the conjunctive model. Some relationships of the ordering theoretic method to conventional psychometric data analytic procedures are discussed. (Author/GW)
