2022 Online Intermediate/Advanced (combined) Rasch Analysis Course

Rasch Course



2022 Online Intermediate/Advanced (Combined) Rasch Analysis Course:

This course builds on the Introductory Rasch Analysis using RUMM2030 Course, progressing and advancing the base that was developed during the Introductory Course (a prerequisite). Some Rasch Measurement Theory topics will be expanded and developed, whereas others will be newly introduced. This is a practical course which aims to aid the Rasch practitioner, in terms of how best to carry out a Rasch analysis, and how to present the findings. We will discuss topics such as analyses ordering, DIF issues, local dependency, anchoring, data simulation and longitudinal data. This course will primarily use examples from the health sciences, but it will also suit those working in the measurement of outcomes of attitudinal data in the social sciences or in educational testing, as well as those working in health sciences and with PROMs.

It is assumed that participants will have some familiarity with the RUMM2030 software, therefore all participants are expected to have completed the introductory course or have experience with the RUMM2030 software.

Please note that the Intermediate and Advanced Rasch Courses were previously offered separately. We have, however, amended the format so that we are now offering only this single Intermediate/Advanced Course, which signifies the progression from the Introductory Course.

  • Access to a computer running a pre-installed Evaluation Edition of RUMM 2030 (which we will provide) or a full version of RUMM 2030
