Association for Institutional Research (NJ1)
Quality measurement is essential in every form of research, including institutional research and assessment. This paper addresses the erroneous assumptions institutional researchers often make with regard to survey research and provides an alternative method to producing more valid and reliable measures. Rasch measurement models are discussed and a demonstration is provided, thus highlighting the utility of the Rasch models in higher education research and practice. (Contains 3 figures and 1 footnote.)
