Title:Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers [electronic resource]
Author(s): Milan Holick
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The theory of probability and mathematical statistics is becoming an indispensable discipline in many branches of science and engineering. This is caused by increasing significance of various uncertainties affecting performance ofcomplex technologica l systems. Fundamental concepts and procedures used in analysis of these systems are often based on the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. The book sets out fundamental principles of the probabilitytheory, supplemented by theoretical model s of random variables, evaluation of experimental data, sampling theory, distribution updating and tests of statistical hypotheses. Basic concepts of Bayesian approach to probability andtwo-dimensional random variables, are also covered. Examples of relia bility analysis and risk assessment of technological systems are used throughout the book to illustrate basic theoretical concepts and their applications. The primaryaudience for the book includes undergraduate and graduate students of science and enginee ring, scientific workers and engineers and specialists in the field of reliability analysis and risk assessment. Except basic knowledge ofundergraduate mathematics no special prerequisite is required

Title:Elements of Adaptive Testing [electronic resource]
Author(s): Wim J van der Linden
Cees A.W Glas
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The arrival of the computer in educational and psychological testing has led to the current popularity of adaptive testing---a testing format in which the computer uses statistical information about the test items toautomatically adapt their selectio n to a real-time update of the test takers ability estimate. This book covers such key features of adaptive testing as item selection and ability estimation, adaptive testing with multidimensionalabilities, sequencing adaptive test batteries, multistage a daptive testing, item-pool design and maintenance, estimation of item and item-family parameters, item and person fit, as well as adaptive mastery and classification testing.It also shows how these features are used in the daily operations of several larg e-scale adaptive testing programs. Wim J. van der Linden is Chief Research Scientist at CTB/McGraw-Hill, Monterey, CA. His specialization is psychometrictheory and methods, and he has been an active researcher of adaptive testing throughout his career. Fo r Springer, he wrote Linear Models for Optimal Test Design (2005) and co-edited Handbook of Modern Item ResponseTheory (1997). He isa past president of the Psychometric Society and recipient of lifetime achievement awards from the National Council for Mea surement in Education (NCME) and the Association of Test Publishers (ATP). Cees A. W. Glas is Professor ofSocial Science Research Methodology, University of Twente, the Netherlands. His specialization is psychometric theory and methods, with an emphasis o n item response theory, adaptive testing, model fit analysis, and missing data.Professor Glas is a co-author of Educational Evaluation, Assessment, and Monitoring (Swets & Zetlinger, 2003). Currently, he is a member of the Editorial Board of Psychometrika and serves as a technical consultant to the OECD programsfor international student assessment (PISA) and the assessment of adult competencies (PIAAC)

Title:Data Modeling for Metrology and Testing in Measurement Science [electronic resource]
Author(s): Franco Pavese
Alistair B Forbes
Date:2009
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book and companion DVD provide a comprehensive set of modeling methods for data and uncertainty analysis, taking readers beyond mainstream methods described in standard texts. The emphasis throughout is on techniques having abroad range of real- world applications in measurement science. Mainstream methods of data modeling and analysis typically rely on certain assumptions that do not hold for many practical applications. Developed in this work are methodsand computational tools to address genera l models that arise in practice, allowing for a more valid treatment of calibration and test data and providing a deeper understanding of complex situations in measurement science. Additionalfeatures and topics of the book include: * Introduction to model ing principles in metrology and testing * Presentation of a basic probability framework in metrology and statistical approaches to uncertainty assessment * Discussion ofthe latest developments in data analysis using least squares, Fast Fourier Transform, wavelets, and fuzzy logic methods * Data fusion using neural networks, fuzzy methods, decision making, and risk analysis * A computer-assisted,rigorous approach to data evaluation and analysis of measurement software validity * Introduction to virtual ins truments, and an overview of IT tools for measurement science Data Modeling for Metrology and Testing in MeasurementScience may be used as a textbook in graduate courses on data modeling and computational methods, or as a training manual in the fields of calibration and testing. The book will also serve as an excellent reference for metrologists,mathematicians, statisticians, software engineers, chemists, and other practitioners with a general interest in measurement science
