Abstract

Many of the practical issues that are involved in conducting equating are described in this chapter. We describe major issues and provide references that consider these issues in more depth. The early portions of this chapter focus on equating dichotomously scored paper-and-pencil tests. In later portions, the focus broadens to include practical issues in other contexts, including computerized testing and performance assessments. Various articles have been written that review practical issues in equating (Brennan and Kolen, 1987b; Cook and Petersen, 1987; Harris, 1993; Harris and Crouse, 1993; Skaggs, 1990a; and Skaggs and Lissitz, 1986b) in greater depth than those provided in this chapter.
