New 2-day seminar hosted by Statistical Horizons titled Scale Construction and Development taught by Tenko Raykov, Ph.D. will take place on April 26-27 starting at 9am.

This two-day seminar provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of scale construction and development in the social and behavioral sciences, especially as applied to empirical settings where measuring instruments consist of multiple components or items with no guessing. Throughout the seminar, many empirical examples are utilized from the clinical, behavioral, educational, social, marketing, and organizational disciplines.

Participants in this seminar can expect to come away with:

  1. A nuanced understanding of the conceptual foundations and basic mathematical and statistical relationships underlying behavioral instrument construction and development.
  2. The ability to understand, interpret and explain the output from statistical software for achieving the goals of psychometric scale construction and revision.
  3. An appreciation of the advantages of a thorough study of the underlying latent structure of a tentative version of a multi-component instrument.

To benefit from this seminar, you should have the equivalent of one or more semesters of statistics: a good introductory course with some treatment of probability and random variables as well as regression analysis.

The event is $995 dollar which includes all the course materials. To register for the event CLICK HERE.
