Test construction exercise

In groups, the class construct their own psychometric tests using methods learned during the module. This is a formative assessment (no marks will be given). Results may be written up as model test manual - that is, something you might show to someone who enquired about whether they could use your test. If you hand it in before 31/1/17 you will be given informal feedback.

Researcher Development Initiative

The Psychometrics Centre holds regular Workshops and Summer Schools under its Researcher Development Initiative. Originally an ESRC scheme, it proved so popular that we decided to continue beyond the grant that they gave us in 2008. The slides, handouts and examples from the scheme continue to prove invaluable to those wishing to self-teach in these methods.
