Smith, Everett V., Jr.
Journal of Applied Measurement, v1 n3 p303-26 2000
Describes problems in score reporting with the True Score model, defines the Rasch measurement unit (the logit), reviews transformations of the logit metric, and provides examples of score reporting procedures. Uses dichotomous data from an examination taken by 126 Ph.D. students and polychotomous data from a self-efficacy assessment completed by 16 war veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to illustrate these issues.
