|Rasch Conference : Fifth International conference on probabilistic models for Measurement
The Graduate School of Education at UWA is hosting the Fifth International conference on probabilistic models for Measurement in Education, Psychology, Social Science and Health from 23 to 25 January 2012. The emphasis of the conference is on the Rasch model, named after the Danish mathematician George Rasch. The Rasch model is widely used for data analysis in Education, for example the analysis of national and international proficiency assessments like PISA and NAPLAN. It is also used for analysis of data from questionnaires, for example Quality of Life questionnaires in Health. In marketing the Rasch model is used to analyse data from satisfaction surveys. UWA will also be running an introductory and advanced course in Rasch measurement in the immediate two weeks prior to the conference.
