An enhanced RUMM application for conducting Rasch item analyses was released as RUMM2030 on 1 January 2010 and the licence setup was restructured on 1 March 2012. A new Professional Edition has replaced the former 1-Yr/3-Yr Licence Edition but the status of the current Standard Edition remains unchanged.
RUMM2030 offers a further advancement in the conduct of interactive Rasch analysis within the Rasch paradigm for Rasch Measurement Theory. RUMM2030 is available in two editions: Standard and Professional. As with the RUMM2020 application, both the Standard and Professional editions of RUMM2030 are available as a one-off purchase, that is, there is no requirement to renew the licence at some appointed time in the future.
In addition, the prevailing distinction between commercial and academic versions for RUMM2030 will no longer apply: one price only for the Professional Edition ($1,200*) and one price only for the Standard Edition ($800*). Select from the tabs BELOW for multiple licences.
An overview of the two editions is provided below, FOLLOWED by a SET of TABS for DISPLAYING and then selecting the costs and ordering details for the licence structure that suits you.

Major additional features included in the Professional edition:
1. provision of Standard Errors for thresholds.
Facet Analysis for
up to a 3-way item response structure.
3. strategy for examining response dependence between items.
4. toggle for adding extreme persons to the category response display.
5. conditional test-of-fit for a pair of polytomous items or a pair of tests.
6. post hoc tailored response analysis, e.g., for testing the significance of guessing.
7. enhanced threshold map when a person location is overlayed on the threshold/category map.
8. addition of Person Characteristic Curves and standard residual plots for individual person responses across items attempted.
