Book Title: Statistical Approaches to Measurement Invariance

Author: Roger E. Millsap

Book Description:

Few quantitative methods in the social and behavioral sciences are as fundamental — and also as riddled with controversies — as approaches that help us examine and understand measurement invariance (and detect the lack thereof). In studying human processes over time, groups, cultures, countries, etc., how can we make sure that we are measuring and analyzing the same constructs in different instantiations of the same processes? This book serves as an excellent reminder to us on the issues that underlie the study of measurement invariance, and the work that is yet to be accomplished.
