The second issue of the Journal of Applied Measurement, Volume 17 (2016), is an expanded issue that contains a remembrance of Ben Wright. With Ben's death in October 2015, we were struggling with an appropriate way of remembering Ben and his influence on measurement practice. As a result of those conversations, Nick Bezruczko agreed to undertake an expansion of the dedication, included in book, Rasch Measurement in Health Sciences, that Nick edited back in 2005. The dedication was based on a series of interviews with Ben. The new JAM expanded remembrance includes photographs of the many people who shaped Ben's life and offers insights into the development of Ben's measurement philosophy. Single copies of this volume or single article orders are available throught JAM. Please click on the JAM Back Issues/Single Article Orders link listed below for order information.
