Please vote for your choice of candidate for SIG Chair. The candidate for SIG Secretary is unopposed. Their 2 year terms begin at the AERA Meeting in April 2002.
For SIG Chair
He is a senior staff member of the School of Education at James Cook University in Australia and is internationally known for his work on the application of Rasch analysis to developmental variables and educational outcomes. He undertook (with John King) the first state-wide survey of client satisfaction with public education for Education Queensland (1997/98) using Rasch measurement principles. Trevor's current book (co-authored with Christine Fox), Applying the Rasch model: Fundamental measurement in the human sciences, reflects his longstanding experience in educational settings as the background for applying fundamental measurement to outcomes in the human sciences. He is currently developing Rasch-based procedures for systematically collecting and analyzing student feedback about teaching and subjects at his university. He is a regular presenter on topics of educational and developmental measurement in the U.S., in particular. He regularly supports Rasch SIG presentations and has organized many Rasch based symposia for other AERA divisions and the Jean Piaget Society. Trevor actively supports newcomers to Rasch measurement.
Randall E. Schumacker
He is Professor of Educational Research at the University of North Texas and Adjunct Professor of Medical Education at the University of North Texas Health Science Center. You will find an interesting presentation on Rasch Models on his homepage. Randall has published various articles on Rasch measurement including Rasch quick norms; test equating; Rasch fit statistics; and many-Facets analysis. He completed a sabbatical at the University of Chicago in 1998, participated in several Rasch symposiums at AERA, and is currently finishing a chapter in an upcoming Rasch Measurement Book. He was the Founder, Editor (1994-1998), and current Emeritus Editor of Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal. He also founded the AERA Structural Equation Modeling Special Interest Group.
For SIG Secretary
Edward W. Wolfe:
He is an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University teaching Measurement and Quantitative in the College of Education. His research focuses on cognitively-diagnostic assessment - an integration of cognitive science and latent trait models. Specifically, he examines the implications of departures from latent trait models (e.g., misfit and multidimensionality) and invariance of parameter estimates across subgroups (e.g., differential item functioning) for modeling cognitive states. Examples include the measurement of multidimensional change in individuals over time, identifying causes of differential cross- medium performance on traditional and computer-based tests, diagnosing rater effects in performance assessments, and explaining the cognitive demands of performance assessments. He is also interested in applications of Rasch polytomous, multivariate, and multidimensional item response models and the influence of computer-based testing on examinee performance. He has examined problems pertaining to barriers to the implementation of portfolios in secondary classrooms.
