Dear Mike, 
I just wanted to be sure that WINSTEP or FACETS would not have the capacity for doing generalizability studies as well as other known functionalities in Rasch Measuement. I knew that GENOVA, SAS, and EDUG could be used for generalizability analysis but I thought WINSTEP and FACETS might have such a componenet. 
Thanks for your caring, 
Mohamad Imanian

>Thank you for your question, Mohammad.
>EDUG and FACETS have different purposes. EDUG performs a Generalizability
Theory analysis. Facets performs a Rasch Measurement analysis. These two
analyses are different, and produce different results.
>Generalizability Theory conducts a Generalizability Study in which it
computes the variance terms in the raw scores. These variance terms can
be used to optimize a Decision Study.
>Rasch Measurement constructs additive measures based on the raw scores.
These measures are adjusted for rater leniency, item difficulty,
>Please see
for a comprehensive comparison of the two methodologies.
