About the Workshop:
The workshop will be held on December 8-9, 2018 at S. K. Somaiya College of Arts, Science and Commerce Vidyavihar, Mumbai.
Focus of the Workshop:
Measurement is fundamental to social sciences research and application. However, measurement also represents one of the greatest obstacles that the social scientists face, both in terms of daily practice and in terms of the reputation of the discipline. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce to the participants the central concepts of measurement. The workshop will take a "nuts and bolts" approach, covering the critical aspects of psychometric theory including scale construction, item analysis, reliability, validity, and measurement error. The workshop will be structured around a framework of measurement principles and will be based on a combination of theoretical and practice-oriented sessions that will provide working knowledge of concepts using statistical software like R and R-Studio.
