Ongoing Research Projects

Research interests of the program faculty include problems in item response theory, nonparametric methods, prediction techniques, applications of multivariate techniques to the solution of psychological problems, and computerized adaptive testing.

Research in psychometric methods requires access to modern computing equipment, which is available to all graduate students. This equipment provides a high level of local computing capability. Through these workstations and laptops (provided to all graduate students), students can access local and international computing networks and databases, as well as the state-of-the-art supercomputers available through the Minnesota Supercomputer Institute.
