291 Research Seminar in Measurement and Construct Development
Many disciplines within the business school use instruments to operationalize constructs of interest (e.g., innovation, customer satisfaction, conflict orientation, etc.). The purpose of this seminar will be to teach students about the construction and evaluation of measures of constructs (test construction), with particular emphasis on survey methodology. Thus, the seminar will cover measurement and test construction theory, including reliability and validity. Within the course, students will learn about item analysis, factor analysis, correlation analysis, and structural equation modeling as these quantitative tools are applied to the test construction and evaluation domains. The seminar will involve relevant readings as well as application of concepts to the student’s own research interests.
