The goal of this four-day workshop is to provide an in-depth treatment of the core concepts involved in the design, validation, and scoring of multi-item measurement scales commonly used in the educational, psychological, behavioral, and health sciences. Topics include an introduction to scale development, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, and measurement models for binary and ordinal items (i.e., item response theory models within a factor analysis framework). Equal emphasis is placed on understanding the statistical framework and underlying assumptions of each method and on the practical application of these techniques across a wide array of research settings. The unifying goal of the workshop is to  provide researchers with the modeling tools needed to develop and validate measurement instruments and obtain optimal scores within their own substantive programs of study.

Workshop Details

Reviews

The workshop had many strengths. The teachers were very knowledgeable and their teaching was entertaining. The best was that we get access to the course afterwards. This provides enough time to really learn the course contents.

Comprehensive, good background/context for WHY things are done a certain way.

Patrick and Greg were great at making the material understandable and accessible for attendees.  The demo notes were also extremely well put together.

Patrick, Greg, and Ethan [teaching assistant] are knowledgeable and great at teaching. Their explanations are thorough and accessible. The banter is awesome and really makes the workshop fun.

Applied Measurement Modelling was informative, engaging, and applicable. During the workshop I actually thought, "I like learning statistics" which would have horrified my undergraduate self. I would recommend it and CenterStat to my colleagues.
