Do you work with multiple choice tests, or Likert scale assessment surveys?
Rasch methods help you construct linear measures from these forms of scored observations and analyze the results from such surveys and tests.
In this course, you will learn practical aspects of data setup, analysis, output interpretation, fit analysis, differential item functioning, dimensionality and reporting. Simple test linking and equating designs are addressed.
