Contenuti (corsi)
Clinical measurement of latent constructs often requires use of questionnaires. Measurement of such constructs using questionnaires relies on statistical measurement models. The Item Response Theory provides statistical models which link the latent construct score of a patient to the questionnaire responses of the patient. IRT models are the current golden standard in this context, compared to the Classical Test Theory model where the latent scores are linked to responses by sum-scores.
Obiettivi didattici, obiettivi del training
