The Rasch SIG Business meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 27th, from 6:15pm to 7:45pm in the Parc 55, Third Level - Powell I.
Tim O'Neil, Chair Rasch Measurement AERA Special Interest Group, will provide a brief State of the SIG address
Ed Wolfe, this year's invited speaker, will be presenting on "Four Ways of Learning: Modeling Raters." Here's a brief description to whet your appetite:

In a 2012 Educational Measurement: Issues and Practices article, I argued that future useful research regarding rater effects should seek to merge two lines of research (psychometric and psychological) that have, to date, remained relatively isolated from one another as they relate to this topic. Specifically, I argued that we need to think carefully about and develop causal models regarding how rater effects come to exist. In this presentation, I discuss four examples of research that relate to that goal. First, I present a causal model of rater effects that stems from psychometric and psychological literature. Second, I discuss research that led to the development of a cognitive model of the rating process. Third, I present results of a preliminary study of the interaction between response content and manifest rater effects. Finally, I present results of a study of rater centrality that illustrates how we can improve psychometric modeling by thinking more carefully about how to measure rater effects.
