Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): The institute was founded 14 years ago. The institute includes 3000 students and 200 faculty. The Institute strength is progressiveness of a management. As institute small, innovations are approved and implemented quickly. «Measurement of latent variables» is the basic research of the institute. This research is supported by 17 grants, including one grant of Institute of the Open Society, one grant of Ford Fund, two grants of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, four grants of Fulbright Program, five grants of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and four grants of the Russian Foundation for Humanities. The Institute conducted 10 annual All-Russia (with the international participation) scientifically-practical conferences «Theory and Practice of Measurements of Latent Variables in Education and Other Social and Economic Systems» and 5 schools for the faculty «Measurement of Latent Variables». Importance of the research is explained by the fact that the majority of variables in social studies are latent and the adequate toolkit is necessary for their measurement. There were published 50 articles and 5 monographs.
Expertise offered Measurement of latent variables. Estimation of quality of tests and questionnaires as measuring tools. Working out of tests and questionnaires for measurement of latent variables.
Scientific keywords Measurement of latent variables Monitoring Quality of tests and questionnaires Quality of education Living standard of population
