"Developed by Wald (1947), first applied to measurement by Cronbach and Gleser (1957), and now widely used in engineering, agriculture, and computing, decision theory provides a simple model for the analysis of categorical data. It is most applicable in measurement when the goal is to classify examinees into one of two categories, e.g. pass/fail or master/non-master."
