Although many tests are developed according to a
table of specifications, the literature contains little
guidance to measurement specialists for considering
the measurement properties of tests developed in
this manner. Rather, most of the literature makes
the simplistic assumption that the entire set of
items are drawn from (or represent) a common undifferentiated
domain or universe. This paper presents
a variance components model for many measurement
procedures that are associated with a
table of specifications. In addition, simple procedures
are provided for estimating the model parameters
(variance components and category means)
and functions of them (e.g., composite universe
score variance and error variances).
