Over the years, we must all have been asked over and over again, "What makes Rasch measurement special?" Surely each of us has an answer. I have developed my own answer, but I want to hear yours. Will you write your answer and share it with me by December 25, 1994? (Think of it as your holiday gift to me!). I'm looking for a short answer containing 2-5 key points that you might stress in a 5-10 minute conversation with a practitioner interested in Rasch measurement theory and practice. I will summarize your responses in my next Note from the Chair. Thanks in advance for your help!
