Accommodation: included, double, 7 days/6 nights, as well as two coffee breaks per day, breakfasts and lunches. Single accommodation is available for an extra fee.
Grant opportunity: 10 scholarships for PhD students and young researchers in the field of psychometrics.
Recognized as the preeminent venue for psychometrics and test design in Europe, the School offers three tracks for earlier-career participants with various backgrounds and areas of interest.
The School's hands-on tracks primarily aim to introduce researchers to both basic and more advanced methods of data analysis using the R environment and other relevant software. Theory-centric tracks aim to share comprehensive, yet profound knowledge about instrument design and measurement methodology. One of them is intended specifically for Russian-speaking researchers and is fully delivered in Russian.
The School foregrounds expertise brought by topnotch professionals in the realm of psychometric R&D from Europe and the U.S., so enrollees will benefit from prime opportunities to become better integrated into the global sector community while unlocking new vistas for cross-border networking and R&D collaboration.
