CMI Short Courses
This two-day course aims to introduce participants to measurement theory and the Rasch model for construction and validation of measures. It covers the basic theory behind measurement, from an Item Response Theory perspective, focusing on the assumptions of the Rasch models, in particular. The Rasch model provides the means to create measures (or score scales) from a combination of items in tests or questionnaires. The principles governing the application of such models are shown through examples from educational measurement but are easily applicable to other areas in social and health sciences. Participants will have the chance to practice with various models of the Rasch family (Dichotomous, Rating Scale and Partial Credit) with specialised software (Winsteps).
This two day course aims to introduce participants to measurement theory and the Rasch model for measures construction and validation (Day 1). Participants will get hands on experience with analysis and interpretation of the Dichotomous (Day 1), Partial Credit and Rating Scale (Day 2) Rasch models, with specialised software as well as packages freely available in R.
The course will be delivered with a mixture of lectures and practical sessions, around the following themes:
