Methods and Evaluation / Quality Assurance
Our unit focuses on methodological research, including development, evaluation, and implementation. Specifically, we focus on psychometric methods, causal inference, replication, and networks. Among others, we improve on the modelling of response behavior and missing data by utilizing log-data from computerized tests (e.g. response times), or work on covariate selection for quasi-experimental designs for causal inference or replication studies. In our research we maintain national and international collaborations (AUT, BRA, CAN, CHE, ESP, FRA, GBR, HUN, IRE, NLD, SWE, USA...) both with renowned methodologists and applied researchers.
