The Rasch and IRT models
The students discover the classical approach (Cronbach's alpha) and the modern approach (Rasch, IRT) through examples of analysis of a quantitative questionnaire. They will also discover the psychometrical foundations of scaling involved in interpreting answers to a questionnaire (unidimensionality criterion, fit indices, differential functioning, dichotomous and polytomous item analysis).
The postulates and implications of exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis models. Common practice and specifici procedures (eg: rotations, parallel analysis...) as well as technical difficulties.
Common applications of the procedures and their software imlmentation with a critical approach to tjeresults, fit, and interpretation.
