A workshop to introduce Rasch analysis using RUMM2030 software. This course will suit those working in the measurement of outcomes in the health sciences, of attitudinal data in the social sciences, or in educational testing. It will take the form of hands-on tuition in using the Rasch Unidimensional Measurement Models (RUMM2030) software package. At the end of the two-and-a-half day workshop, students should understand and be able to analyse and interpret data, using RUMM2030, for:

Input of data into the RUMM2030 programme
