Call for Participation
South Central
Objective Measurement Seminar

A Semi-Informal Day of Presentations
Sponsored by the
Institute for Objective Measurement and the
LSUMC-NO Department of Biometry & Genetics'
Outcome Measurement Section

8:45 - 4:30, Friday November 6, 1998
Medical Education Building Seminar Room
Louisiana State University Medical Center
New Orleans

The first South Central Objective Measurement Seminar (SCOMS) will provide health care researchers and providers opportunities to share work employing rigorous yet flexible probabilistic measurement models in health status, quality of life, functional status, patient satisfaction, and educational applications; and to learn more about the use of these models.

SCOMS is patterned on the Midwest Objective Measurement Seminars (MOMS) that have been held semi-annually at the University of Chicago over the last 15 years. A first New England Objective Measurement Seminar was recently held at Boston College, and the Institute for Objective Measurement is planning a similar seminar for the western region, perhaps at the University of California in Berkeley. SCOMS will be our warm-up for April 17-28 in the year 2000, when New Orleans will host four different Rasch measurement meetings, drawing theoreticians and practitioners from all over the world for training sessions, workshops, and research presentations.

If you:
· have results from a data analysis employing a probabilistic conjoint (Rasch) measurement model that you would like to present at SCOMS;
· have survey, rating scale, or test data that you would like to evaluate using a probabilistic conjoint model;
· would like to learn more about Rasch measurement; or
· would like to attend SCOMS

contact William P. Fisher. There are no registration fees. To submit, just e-mail a title and brief description of your presentation.
