AbstractInformation Systems (IS) research frequently uses survey data to measure the interplay between technological systems and human beings. Researchers have developed sophisticated procedures to build and validate multi-item scales that measure latent constructs. Most studies use classical test theory (CTT), which suffers from several theoretical shortcomings. We discuss these problems and present item response theory (IRT) as a viable alternative. Subsequently, we use the CTT approach as well as Rasch models (a class of restrictive IRT models) to develop a scale for measuring the hedonic aspects of websites. The results illustrate how IRT can not only be successfully applied in IS research but also provide improved results over CTT approaches. © (2013) by the AIS/ICIS Administrative Office All rights reserved.
