THE UNIT OF STUDY  - BACKGROUND

In the Australian Semester 2, 2006 (July 24 to October 30), a graduate
unit of study introducing Rasch measurement is available in the external
study mode.   This mode of study means that the unit can be studied from
anywhere in the world. A discussion group will operate for online
interaction as part of the unit of study.

Students enrolled obtain (i) a set of lecture materials, which includes
hard copy of all of the lectures, (ii) details of the assignments you
will be required to submit, (iii) the necessary reading materials, and
(iv) the Study Guide setting out the steps you will need to follow to
successfully complete the unit. 
 
This unit has been presented in the same period every year from 2000.
In each year, over 50 people from many parts of the world took the
opportunity to enrol. Because of the success of the previous
presentations, the course is being offered again this year. 

The use of the program RUMM2020  is available throughout the unit.  
The RUMM program is a very easy to use interactive program that permits
learning many features of the Rasch measurement model by working around
the program's menus - for example the effects of rescoring any item,
deleting items, studying alternatives in distractors, assessing
differential item functioning, automatic linking of different sets of
items, effects of deleting samples or individuals, taking account of
missing data, and so on. To enhance understanding all of the information
is available both graphically and statistically, including item
characteristic curves, person item maps, etc.  The program comes with
three manuals and analysed data sets.
