Dr Igor Gomes Menezes

Biography:

Dr Menezes is Professor of Psychometrics at the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. His special areas of expertise are Multidimensional Item Response Theory (MIRT) and Multilevel Modelling.  His work includes a meta-assessment project in education funded by the Brazilian government that evaluates the psychometric quality of the biggest large-scale test developed to measure the pupils' abilities in the 4th, 8th, and 11th graders. This exam, called Prova Brazil, involves about 3,300,000 pupils, 49,000 schools and 80,000 teachers. One of the goals of the project is to study the dimensionality of this test from MIRT models. Igor was also an Academic Visitor to The Psychometrics Centre for the academic year 2013-2014 and continues to work with us on collaborative projects.
