IERI Autumn Academy 2015: IRT and Population Modeling in Large-scale Assessments


The IEA-ETS Research Institute (IERI) is organizing a three-day academy on assessment designs, and the use of Item Response Theory (IRT) and population modeling in large-scale assessments. The goal of the Academy is to familiarize participants with the topics related to assessment designs and IRT, and enable them to use commercially available software to conduct appropriate IRT analysis and generate proficiency estimates or plausible values.

The Academy is targeted to participants with some or little knowledge in the area of IRT and multiple imputations. The Academy will be limited to 30 participants. Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants of the Academy are expected to have knowledge of statistical analysis techniques and must bring their own laptop computer. Demonstration versions of the software for the hands-on training will be distributed to the participants during the Academy. Demo software works only on Windows based systems. Spreadsheet applications such as Excel, and statistical software such as SPSS or SAS will be useful, but are not be required.

The IERI Academy will be held in Salzburg, Austria, and hosted by the Federal Institute for Educational Research, Innovation & Development of the Austrian School System (BIFIE).
