We would like to thank Angoff (1987) for his
thoughtful and extensive review of the Kolen and
Brennan (1987) and Brennan and Kolen (1987)
papers. His comments were very helpful to us in
clarifying our thinking about a number of issues.
Although we find ourselves in agreement with most
of his comments, there are two issues that we believe
merit further consideration-synthetic population
weights and the circular equating paradigm.
In retrospect, our initial discussion of these topics
probably should have been more extensive. We
hope that the following reply will clarify our position
with respect to these two issues.
