We are planning a 2-day Rasch workshop for October 8-9, 2010 in Maple 
Grove, MN, USA.

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

Thank you,


The purpose of this training session is to introduce participants to the 
theory and applications of Rasch measurement. This session will provide 
participants with the necessary tools to become effective consumers of 
research employing Rasch measurement and the skills necessary to solve 
practical measurement problems. Instructional material will be based on 
four Rasch measurement models: dichotomous, rating scale, partial credit, 
and many-facet data. Participants will have the opportunity to use current 
Rasch software.

The format will consist of eight self-contained units. The units are: 
Introduction to Rasch Measurement; Item and Person Calibration; Dichotomous 
and Polytomous Data; Performance and Judged Data; Applications of Rasch 
Measurement I and II; Examples of Rasch Analyses; and Analysis of 
Participants Data. The material covered is these units are an overview of 
material that would normally be covered in approximately two to three 
graduate level measurement courses. The co-directors will divide the topics 
in each session to maximize individual strengths.

morning, lunch each afternoon, over 550 pages of handouts and tutorial 
material, a copy of Introduction to Rasch Measurement (698 pages), Rasch
