Introduction to Nonparametric Item Response Theory addresses an important and complex topic in test development in a manner that is precise and accurate, yet accessible to students and practitioners with a modest background in classical test theory. It also provides an excellent introduction to nonparametric IRT models for the more mathematically sophisticated student or researcher who will welcome the extensive additonal reading lists that are found at the conclusion of each chapter.
