Published Web Location

Pre-Conference Workshop in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Geriatrics Society of America San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA, USA, 14 November 2012 In 2004, the NIH awarded contracts to initiate the development of high-quality psychological and neuropsychological outcome measures for the improved assessment of health-related outcomes. The workshop introduced these measurement development initiatives, the measures created and the NIH-supported resource (Assessment Center) for internet or tablet-based test administration and scoring. Presentations covered item response theory and assessment of test bias, construction of item banks and computerized adaptive testing, and the different ways in which qualitative analyses contribute to the definition of construct domains and the refinement of outcome constructs. The panel discussion included questions about representativeness of samples and the assessment of cultural bias.
