PROMS invites presentations on the theory and practice of applying the Rasch model across the human sciences, including business, education, health and psychology. These could include research applying the Rasch model, advances in the practice of measurement, or reviews of modern measurement theory. Topics of submission may include, but are not limited to:

  • Development and validation of assessment instruments
  • Rater effects in performance assessment
  • Fairness of using assessment to make decisions
  • Assessing language skills such as listening, reading, writing, and speaking
  • Advances in the practice of measurement
  • Issues relating to modern measurement theory
  • Technical issues of the application of the Rasch model
  • Using the Rasch model collaboratively with other statistical procedures such as G-theory

Following the usual PROMS practice, accepted papers will be allocated to presentation strands with similar focus.
