Assessment professionals consistently request more approachable, methodologically-grounded professional development opportunities. Given this need, we believe that psychometric and evaluation specialists should partner to translate and de-mystify these fields and promote effective assessment. Our interactive, full-day session will employ assessment models and approaches that bridge disciplines of psychometrics and evaluation. Psychometric literature is often mathematically dense and theoretically bound while evaluation can be viewed as qualitative or judgment-focused. Fortunately, these fields complement when properly reassembled in applied assessment. This workshop will begin by discussing approaches to “standard setting” (e.g., cut scores for proficiency), then consider programmatic limitations, and finally investigate specific methodologies. The afternoon methodology discussion will illuminate pros and cons of statistical, measurement, and psychometric models, applying mixed methods to a variety of evaluation projects. Participants are encouraged to bring institutional projects with methodological questions; alternately sample cases will be provided. Workshop outcomes include evaluation of data sets, standard setting, and initial validation approaches.
