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. DCMnet started as a network devoted to DCM research and practice. But given the multifaceted and multidimensional expertise and inquiries of its subscribers, DCMnet has morphed into a more general network interested in cognition and assessment in its broadest sense. We hope that DCMNET can be a network that connects DCM researchers and engages the DCM community in thoughtful and fruitful discussions. Whether you are a student just learning about DCMs, a psychometrician with an inquiry, or an educator interested in an issue related to cognition and assessment, 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 Quantitative Methodology at the University of Georgia. All correspondences regarding the listerv should be sent to him at mjmadison@uga.edu. DCMNET is sponsored by UCLA Communications Technology Services.
