1990 AERA Program (Rasch SIG)

The Rasch Measurement SIG will offer our membership meeting/invited address and three paper sessions at this year's AERA Annual Meeting in Boston.

The membership meeting on Tuesday, April 17, will feature talks by Barry McGaw, Australian Council of Educational Research, and Benjamin Wright, University of Chicago. Barry McGaw's Rasch scaling for monitoring and reporting on educational systems is based on his experiences with Rasch measurement of educational achievement in Australia. Ben Wright's Differences between scores and measures will be an expansion of the research notes that have appeared in RMT.

The first paper session on Monday, April 16, is on Partial Credit and Rating Scale applications. Two papers by Barbara Dodd and William Koch report on computerized adaptive testing with the Partial Credit model. Two other papers look at applications of the Rating Scale model to measurement, one on pastoral care by William Fisher, the second on ethical sensitivity in computer use by Sue Leibowitz. The final paper by Robert Gable is on the use of Rating Scale residuals to analyze item structure and person characteristics.

The second paper session, Rasch Measurement: Past and Future on Friday, April 20, combines two presentations on the history of Rasch measurement by David Andrich and George Engelhard, Jr. with two presentations about future applications by Mary Lunz and John Michael Linacre.

The third session on Friday, April 20, focuses on dichotomous applications of Rasch measurement. Two papers by Philip Westfall and Richard Smith are on the use of Rasch person fit analysis to improve the predictive validity of test scores. The other two papers are on the application of the Rasch model to tests of irony in poetry by Michael Smith and the application of the Saltus model to a Piagetian test of cognitive development by Karen Ekstrand.
