5.0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensive and intelligible book on the subject, 23 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Streiner and Norman have written a book which is both practical and comprehensive simultaneously. As a teaching aid it is invaluable. As a reference work it appears to cover all aspects in a language which is comprehensible by statisticians and the medics they are working with. As a practical guide the book walks you through the process of scale development, pointing out the pitfalls with accuracy, yet giving confidence that the procedure is actually do-able. For anyone working in the field, or about to start, I recommend it. For anyone, like me, who left their copy on another continent and cannot live without it, Amazon's price is a good deal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Of limited use to non psychometricians, 25 May 2010
By 
Amazon Customer (Rotterdam, the netherlands) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Health Measurement Scales: A practical guide to their development and use (Paperback)
Don't get me wrong: I liked the book with its clear language and advice. I do feel however, that the title Health Measurement Scales suggests a broader perspective than psychometrics. Many epidemiologists and econometricians are working in the same field, but their concepts and contributions were given little attention. As a consequence the difference between reliability and validity will feel awkward for epidemiologists and the introduction of differential item functioning (response heterogeneity) is very elementary to econometricians. I do think however that the book is very suitable for inexperienced psychometricians.
