ASAEICAutumn school on the Assessment of cognitive functioning and intelligence: New developments, modelling, and constructing web-based instruments
Contact | Print


During the autumn school recent scientific developments in the assessment of cognitive functioning and intelligence will be presented.
Furthermore, CONCERTO, an open-source web-based environment to construct psychological tests on the basis of IRT models developed by the Psychometric Lab of Cambridge University will be presented.

The autumn school consists of three parts:

Part 1 (2 days): The assessment of cognitive functioning and intelligence: New theoretical developments and web-based application (a.o. F. Van de Vijver, D. Bartram).

Part 2 (3 days): "Concerto, Item Response Theory and Computer Adaptive Testing"

The workshop will cover, in a nutshell, the following:
  • Theoretical introduction to item response theory and computer adaptive testing
  • Data analysis and manipulation in R
  • Practical use of IRT and CAT in R
  • Creating an online adaptive test in Concerto (we have worked with different tests based on the instructors’ preference, but examples include ability tests and depression scales)

See for more information

Part 3 (1/2 day) a presentation of own work. Will focus on application of the models to own data and possible future research.
