Summary

The inadequacies in present measurement models are indicated and a description is given of how tree theory, a theory-generative model, overcomes these inadequacies. Among the weaknesses cited in many measurement models are their untested assumptions of linear order and unidimensionality and their inability to generate non-associational relationships for a given set of empirical events. Tree theory is a measurement model whose intent is the generation and testing of specific logical relationships among empirical events. Tree theory has as its basic mathematical framework free Boolean algebra and employs the multinomial distribution as the basis for its statistical tests. The method of tree theory is described in terms of its Boolean algebraic and statistical procedures. Applications are then cited for the fields of evaluation and developmental psychology.
