Mission Statement

Welcome to the offical homepage of the Rasch Measurement Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association. Our mission is to provide a forum for presentation, discussion, and interaction related to the development of theoretically based and empirically testable instruments with objective linear measures.

Join the Rasch SIG

AERA allocates a certain number of presentation slots to each SIG. The number of slots is proportional to the membership size of the SIG. The more members we have affiliated with the Rasch SIG, the more presentation slots AERA will sponsor for Rasch-related research.

Joining the SIG is easy and the cost is just $10 per year. To join, simply follow the instructions on the AERA SIG membership page.
