Theories and Applications in Social Measurement
Monday 7 - Friday 18, January 2002
Perth, Western Australia

This unit of coursework provides a theory of social measurement that unifies major approaches used in education, psychology and sociology for the construction of scales for performance assessment, questionnaires for measuring attitude and preference and choice. The history, philosophy and mathematics of the theory are integrated in the process of considering the designs for data collection, the models for analysis, and the software for implementing the analyses. Basic principles will be emphasized throughout, and it will be shown how the study of bias, implementation of item banking, the study of profiles, and the like, arise from the same theory. This theory is based on the simple logistic model of Rasch for dichotomous responses, and it is extended into ordered category responses and into paired comparison response formats including those for preference and choice data.
