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!

New Resources for Graduate Students

CGS Occasional Paper Series

The Council of Graduate Schools Occasional Paper Series includes case studies that highlight the achievements, best practices, and lessons learned of CGS awardees and grant recipients as well as research studies focused on graduate education. The Occasional Paper Series reflects the diverse institutional, disciplinary, and demographic differences of CGS member institutions.

While these papers foreground the perspectives and achievements of particular individuals and universities, we publish these case study narratives and strategies to inspire and inform institutions in their mission to improve and advance graduate education.

Authors are responsible for the content of this Occasional Paper. The views and interpretations expressed are not necessarily those of CGS. Questions regarding these papers should be directed to the author(s).
