Dear Colleagues,

David Andrich will be visiting the University of Illinois at Chicago in 
April. We are planning for David to give a 2-day Rasch workshop on Saturday 
and Sunday April 29 and 30, 2006.

Below is a brief description for the April workshop in Chicago. I would 
appreciate if you could pass this along to anyone that may be interested.


An Introduction to Rasch Measurement: Theory and Applications
April 29 – 30, 2006
Chicago, IL


The purpose of this training workshop is to introduce participants to the 
theory and applications of Rasch measurement and provide hands-on 
experience using the RUMM2020 interactive windows program to analyse data 
according to the unidimensional Rasch measurement models.

Participants: This workshop is relevant for those who have become 
acquainted with the practice of Rasch measurement but would like to 
understand the principles behind it, and for those who know they are likely 
to need to use Rasch measurement.

Instructional material will be based on the application of the Rasch model 
to the following three response formats: dichotomous, including multiple 
choice achievement items, rating scale and partial credit.

Analysis of real data sets with the the interactive facilities on the 
program RUMM2020 for Rasch analysis of data will be demonstrated. 
Participants should bring their own PC laptop to analyze their own data.

Registration includes the full 2-day workshop, a full version of RUMM2020 
which expires at the end of June 2006 with three levels of manuals, morning 
coffee, morning and afternoon tea breaks each day, over 250 pages of 
handouts and reprinted papers, a copy of Introduction to Rasch Measurement 
(a 698 page book) and a one-year subscription to the Journal of Applied
