Rasch Measurement Transactions

RMT is a quarterly publication of the Rasch Measurement SIG of the American Educational Research Association, a confluence of those on the quest for sound quantitative understanding of qualitative data. RMT is the most up-to-date source of information relating to Rasch measurement, often months or years ahead of the professional journals. Its contents include abstracts, reviews and short notes on the theory and practice of Rasch measurement. Application areas in education include multiple-choice testing, questionnaire analysis, computer- adaptive testing and performance assessment.

Our Special Interest Group is dedicated to the dissemination of useful measurement theory and techniques. Our activities include sessions at the AERA Annual Meeting, the biennial International Objective Measurement Workshop, and local gatherings, such as the Midwest Objective Measurement Seminars held in Chicago.

The SIG was founded by Richard M. Smith and Ben Wright (University of Chicago) in 1987.
