This year numerous students and faculty members traveled to San Antonio, TX for the annual AERA/NCME meetings. Students had the opportunity to present their research, network with alumni at the annual UNCG AERA/NCME reception, and attend workshops.

Student presentations include:

Yan Fu. Do Option-Based Diagnostic Models Provide More Information than Correct-Option Based Diagnostic Models? Option-based and Global Fit Statistics for the GDCM-MC. (NCME: paper).

Elizabeth Patton. Evaluating the efficacy of the Liu Agresti estimator of the cumulative common log odds ratio classification systems for polytomous differential item functioning. (NCME: poster).
