but four in particular have been seen to gain most benefit from their
enrolment. 
(i) Professionals (education, psychology, health, economics) engaged in
assessment and measurement of proficiency, attitude, outcomes, etc, who
know classical test theory and need to understand the principles of
modern test theory and Rasch measurement in particular. 
(ii) People who have become familiar with Rasch measurement and modern
test theory (item response theory) through professional exposure, but
would like to consolidate their understanding of its first principles. 
(iii) Students who are enrolled in higher degree studies and require
knowledge and evidence of studying educational and psychological
measurement, in particular introduction to traditional and modern test
theory.
