Welcome to the ITEMS Portal!

The ITEMS portal is your entry point into a world of learning around core educational measurement concepts. ITEMS modules are its centerpiece, which are relatively short self-contained lessons with various supporting resources that support self-guided learning as well as professional instruction. In addition, you can interact with other learners through the discussion function in each module to connect yourself to different micro-communities tailored to your learning needs.

New Digital Modules:

Digital Module 1: Reliability in Classical Test Theory
​In this ITEMS module Charlie Lewis, Michael Chajewski, and Andre Rupp provide a two-part introduction to the topic of reliability from the perspective of classical test theory (CTT).
Digital Module 2: Scale Reliability in Structural Equation Modeling
​In this ITEMS module Greg Hancock and Ji An provide an overview of scale reliability from the perspective of structural equation modeling (SEM) and address some of the limitations of Cronbach’s α.

Attention: You need to quickly create a (free!) user account within the Elevate LMS (this website) to access any modules - you do NOT have to be an NCME member to do this.
