AERA Annual Meeting

Call for Papers
New Orleans, April 24-28, 2000

Tell us about your experiences applying, explaining or thinking about Rasch measurement. Participate in the 2000 AERA Meeting! Send your proposal in AERA format (see Educational Researcher May 1999 or AERA website) to reach me by August 2, 1999. Though SIG sessions are well attended by our friends, we are especially interested in Rasch-related papers that will appeal to a wider audience. Priority will be given to new presenters. Your proposal will be reviewed anonymously. Please include adequate descriptions of data analyses and full citations for your references. Formats include papers, round-tables, posters, symposia and alternative session formats. If you are proposing a format other than a paper, explain that in your proposal.

Please send me a note if you are willing to serve as a reviewer, session chair or discussant.
