|The Diagnostic Classification Model Discussion Network|
Welcome to DCMNET, the official diagnostic classification model (DCM) network. DCMNET is a discussion network for all things related to DCMs. It was created for and devoted to anyone and everyone interested in researching, applying, or learning more about diagnostic classification models, also known as cognitive diagnosis models.
DCMs are still relatively new to the psychometric community, but research is being done at what we believe to an unprecedented rate. In addition, there are many researchers interested in applying DCMs in their respective areas of research. We hope that DCMNET will help to connect researchers and practitioners in a way that will be useful for all. Whether you are a graduate student just learning about DCMs, an operational psychometrician conducting analyses, or an educator interested in applying a DCM, DCMNET is an open forum to ask questions and have discussions with DCMers all over the world.
DCMNET is currently operated by Matthew J. Madison, assistant professor of education at UCLA. All correspondences regarding the listerv should be sent to him at email@example.com. DCMNET is sponsored by UCLA Communications Technology Services. To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Dcmnet Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
