This seminar on Item Response Theory, Taught by Dr. Tenko Raykov, 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.
Participants in this seminar can expect to come with necessary tools in order to understand theory as well as an understanding of conceptual foundations underlying item response modeling.
The seminar is two days in length, beginning on October 20 ending on October 21 and is being hosted by Statistical Horizons. Registration cost is $955. To register please click HERE.
