Article summary:

1. Psychometrics is a scientific discipline concerned with quantitative measurement practices in psychology, education, and the social sciences. It originated from the common factor model developed by Charles Spearman in 1904, which allowed for the measurement of general intelligence or "g". Psychometric research has further developed various modeling techniques such as classical test theory, structural equation modeling, item response theory, and multidimensional scaling.

2. Psychometrics has been used to measure and predict psychological attributes such as personality dimensions, mental abilities, and psychiatric disorders. It has also been applied in practical settings such as college admission tests, job performance assessments, and clinical assessments in psychiatric practice.

3. Despite its prominence in the scientific domain and society at large, little research has been done on the origins and development of psychometrics over time. This article aims to contribute to a better understanding of these issues by providing an academic genealogy of Psychometric Society presidents. An academic genealogy is a genealogical tree that visualizes advisor-student relations and provides an overview of one or more scientific disciplines. The construction of this genealogy can help uncover how psychometrics originated as a scientific discipline and how it has evolved over time.
