A Simple, Accurate Approximation of the Standard Error of Measurement.
Garvin, Alfred D.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v13 n2 p101-05 Sum 1976
A simple, usefully accurate approximation of the standard error of measurement is proposed for use by classroom teachers. An empirical comparison with Lord's approximation indicated that, though not as easy to calculate as Lord's, this approximation is more practical because it is useful at any point in the score distribution.
