Presentation Type: paper presentation
Synopsis: This presentation presents preliminary results for the Restrictiveness of Living Environment Scale (ROLES) Revision Project. Many measures that are associated with social service systems, including the ROLES, are ordinal and therefore preclude using arithmetic procedures in analyzing the data. This presentation will describe the item and response option calibrations of the REM-Y using a Rasch Measurement Model, including the differential item function (DIF) across placement settings and across child and youth characteristics. In addition, the Rasch analyses will allow us to transform the ordinal response categories on the REM-Y into interval data supporting the development of taxonomy of program types.
