This workshop will feature in-depth instruction in the theory and practice of equating, as in chapters 1-8 in Kolen and Brennan (2004), Test equating, scaling, and linking: Methods and practices (2nd ed.) published by Springer-Verlag. Participants will also gain experience with computer programs for equating. The workshop is suitable for advanced graduate students in measurement; faculty who plan to teach equating; employees of state departments of education, testing companies, licensure and certification organizations, and others who want relatively in-depth training in equating. It is assumed that participants have knowledge at the level of intermediate statistics and intermediate measurement.
