Rasch SIG Update from Chair, December 2013

Greetings Rasch SIG colleagues,

I wanted to provide a brief update on SIG activities as we meander through the holiday season. First and foremost are the upcoming elections. By now you are likely well aware of this, as I had sent out appeals to the membership seeking nominees. This set of elections is based on our new by-laws in which we now move to having three elected posts: Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. (Note that we are still waiting for final confirmation that our by-laws have been formally approved by AERA, but are directed to operate as if they are fully implemented.) We will have final nominations as of December 15th, and please do look out for postings from AERA as far as voting in the election. Additionally we continue to have a need for someone to volunteer to serve as our webmaster. If you are skilled in this area and willing to help out, please do reach out to us. This entails occasional updates to the website and posting of RMT articles. Not an enormous commitment, but one that would be very much appreciated.

I wanted to acknowledge the ongoing efforts of our current SIG officers and appointees. Kelly Bradley and Jessica Cunningham have served as Program Co-Chairs this year and I am looking forward to sharing the results of their efforts as we move closer to the 2014 AERA annual conference. Kirk Becker has consistently availed himself during his tenure as Secretary/Treasurer and his commitment to the SIG has been appreciated. Lastly, I continue to be impressed with RMT and the efforts of Ken Royal in this regard. Thank you all!

Beyond the holidays we are looking forward to Philadelphia for both AERA and the International Objective Measurement Workshop (IOMW). For our SIG business meeting, I am very happy to report that David Andrich has committed to provide this year's talk. Please make plans to attend this meeting.

Kind Regards,

Tim O'Neil
