Recognized as the preeminent venue for psychometrics and test design in Europe, the School offers four 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.
This year the School is orginised in cooperation with University "Sirius".
