Specialized Rasch Measures Applied at the Forefront of Education Hardback
Edited by Russell F. Waugh
Rasch models are used for analysing data from assessments to measure things such as abilities, attitudes, and personality traits.
For example, they may be used to estimate a student's reading ability from answers to questions on a reading assessment, or the extremity of a person's attitude to capital punishment from responses on a questionnaire.
Rasch models are particularly used in psychometrics, the field concerned with the theory and technique of psychological and educational measurement.
