Reviews

'... the book covers such a broad range of topics, researchers at any stage of the scale development or assessment process can be expected to find some utility in the advice and excellent examples ... As research on health measurement expands, we expect this book to serve as a helpful companion to the medical and health researcher.' Quality of Life Research
"The examples and illustrations provided are one of the book's great strengths. Each example seems carefully selected to better describe the measurement topic. It is our experience that measurement issues lend themselves well to graphical illustrations and real-data applications, and this book offers a wealth of both. Finally, an `assignment' section follows each chapter that could prove useful in classroom settings. Intended for students, the questions focus on key aspects from each chapter and require a solid understanding of the material covered... As research on health measurement expands, we expect this book to serve as a helpful companion to the medical and health researcher." Brian D. Stucky & Claudia C. A. Pereira, Quality of Life Research
