EHE RMC Methodology Leadership Series and Software Saturday Series


Generalized Item Response and Factor Trees with Dr. Paul De Boeck, OSU Professor of Psychology

Thursday, October 27, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

EHE College Commons, Ramseyer Hall 260



The RMC Strongly Agrees that you can get more information from your survey data!


Do you use surveys for your research?  While many of us rely on Likert Scales (Strongly Agree, Agree, etc.) to collect data, most of us don’t really know how to analyze these data.  Are they interval level?  Ordinal?  How you can properly deal with “Neutral” or “Undecided” responses?


Join Paul De Boeck as he discusses the true nature of Likert-type data and provides real-world examples of how these data can best be analyzed.  After this workshop, you will have new options for analysis that can help you get more information from your survey data!
