The purpose of this webinar will be to review best practices in designing surveys, introduce participants to construct mapping, and provide a brief introduction to Rasch analysis. Using construct mapping provides a 1) coherent and substantive definition for the construct's content and 2) involves designing the items based on an underlying, hierarchical continuum. Designing your surveys using construct mapping facilitates more precise measurement of your latent variables of interest (e.g., attitudes, beliefs).
