Introduction to Rasch Analysis

A workshop to introduce Rasch analysis. It will suit those working in the measurement of outcomes in the health sciences, of attitudinal data in the social sciences, or in educational testing. It will take the form of hands-on tuition in using the Rasch Unidimensional Measurement Models (RUMM2020) software package. At the end of the two-and-a-half days workshop students should understand and be able to analyze data, using RUMM2020, for:
* Internal construct validity (Unidimensionality);
* Category probability patterns for polytomous items;
* Differential Item Functioning;
* Scaling Characteristics.

Intermediate Rasch analysis

This workshop will look at more advance topics using the RUMM2020 software, and will include issues of pooling data from international studies, linking scales and writing a Rasch paper. Students should have completed the introductory course, or have experience with RUMM software. At the end of this workshop, students should be able to:

* Adjust estimates of patient ability (or trait) for cross- cultural differences in outcome measures (to facilitate pooled data in international studies).
* Link scales from an ill-conditioned data set
* Conduct multi-faceted Rasch analysis
* Write a good Rasch paper.

Faculty: Alan Tennant, Michel Horton.
