Joe,
 
I won't offer to be the outside expert, others on the listserv are much
more qualified but I share your interest in applying Rasch in a mixed
methods design and would appreciate hearing about your project in the
future when you have information to share.  Also, I was in the same
class with you in Chicago.
 
Best regards,

Hello - 

Joe Albano here - I'm a graduate student looking for some assistance
with my
dissertation research. 



I attended the Rasch Workshop that Ev Smith and Richard Smith held in
Chicago in April this year. I am in the Psychology Program at Saybrook
Graduate School and Research Center in SF focusing on Organizational
Systems
issues. It's a distance learning program - I'm based near Indianapolis.


I'm writing to ask for help with some work that I would like to do.
Saybrook
tends to have a rather qualitative bent and I am attempting to design
a
mixed method study for my dissertation. I believe that Rasch
Measurement may
be appropriate for the quantitative component. I spoke to our director
of
research who informed met that no Rasch expertise exists among the
faculty
and that I would have to identify and engage outside expertise in order
to
use Rasch methods. 

I believe that the project will be relatively straightforward. -I'm
attempting to create an inventory to assess the strength of employee
engagement. The preexisting instruments I have been able to locate
conflate
engagement and satisfaction. 

I am requesting and would appreciate any assistance anyone can provide
in
identifying a resource interested in helping me out. I'd also be
interested
in publishing an article regarding my experience -if we determine that
such
a basic application would add value to the literature - perhaps a
cookbook
for basic scale development using RM. If such a cookbook already
exists, any
pointers to it would be great!

Best regards,



Joe.

Seems rather straightforward.  Separate the engagement questions and
satisfaction questions.  Put them into separate Rasch's and one with
both
sets in a single one.  Do a factor analysis on the residuals
