Workshop 5 – Regenwetter

QTEST: Quantitative Testing of Theories of Binary Choice

Michel Regenwetter

This half-day workshop is aimed at graduate students, postdocs and faculty interested in learning about distribution-free models of binary choice: How to build them and how to test them. The format will combine a lecture with hand-on exercises. Attendees should bring a laptop with the QTEST software installed. While the workshop does not require prior reading, attendees will benefit from reading any or all of the papers (reprints at listed below.
