In a recently published book on psychometrics by Furr and Bacharach (58), the reliability issue is dealt with extensively, in contrast to the focus modern psychometrics places on item-response theory models. According to modern psychometrics, a scale with adequate validity also possesses adequate reliability (4). When evaluating the reliability of an assessment questionnaire, the degree of unanimity is analysed. According to the clinimetric approach, the experienced clinician must be the key, and subsequent analysis is made of the percentage of clinicians using a certain scale that deviate from the master.

May, with reference to Wittgenstein, be considered as two different pathways which we consider as different approaches (77). 3 The psychometric models: classical vs. dk Appendix 11b Calculus example 2 A mathematical model for measurement issues. g. the Rasch model, possesses the measurement technical advantage that the total score is a sufficient statistic, in that we have the distance between and rank order of the individual items. (often referred to as invariant item ordering or transferability).

The reason for this is that MADRS is a subscale derived from the Comprehensive Psychopathological Rating Scale, in which the individual items have a Likert scale from 0–3 (82). The scale has merely been doubled without taking note of the empty steps, thus making it semi-global (see Appendix 3c). The first psychometric analysis of the MADRS showed that psychiatrists using the Modern psychometrics 45 scale had avoided the empty steps (71). This is probably the reason why the standardisation of the MADRS has a relatively high value of 12 for remission, while the corresponding score on the HAM-D is 7.
