This workshop will provide an introduction to the Rasch model from IRT. Much of the workshop will be interactive to provide participants with experience interpreting Rasch output using de-identified medical education data based on multiple choice questions. Guidelines for applying Rasch estimation using Winsteps software will be demonstrated. Practical examples of data preparation, item analysis, test equating with item anchors will be considered as well as person ability statistics.
