Item Response Theory, Taught by Dr. Tenko Raykov

November 1-2, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


This two-day seminar provides a thorough introduction to Item Response Theory (IRT), a set of psychometric models and techniques for the design, analysis, and scoring of tests, questionnaires, and other instruments for measuring abilities, attitudes, and other variables. In contrast to classical test theory, IRT emphasizes categorical items and the inclusion of parameters for item-level difficulty. In recent years, it has become the leading statistical paradigm for the development and assessment of psychometric instruments. This seminar covers multiple intermediate levels as well as several more advanced topics. Throughout the course, numerous empirical examples are utilized from the educational, behavioral, and social sciences.
