Tenko Raykov, Ph.D., is Professor of Measurement and Quantitative Methods at Michigan State University.
His research spans a variety of areas with many practical applications, including latent variable and structural equation modeling, measurement and scale construction and development, multilevel modeling, longitudinal data modeling, analysis of incomplete data sets. Recent projects include methods for reliability and validity estimation, missing data analysis, model fit assessment, effect-size estimation, and inter-rater agreement evaluation.
Professor Raykov has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in numerous academic journals, including Structural Equation Modeling, British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology, Multivariate Behavioral Research, Applied Psychological Measurement, Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, and Educational and Psychological Measurement. He has also written several textbooks (with G. A. Marcoulides): A First Course in Structural Equation Modeling (2006), An Introduction to Applied Multivariate Analysis (2008), Introduction to Psychometric Theory (2011), and Basic Statistics: An Introduction with R (2012).
At Michigan State, he has taught courses in multilevel modeling, structural equation and latent variable modeling, psychometric theory (behavioral and social science measurement), univariate and multivariate statistics, as well as units on missing data analysis, survival analysis, and statistical software (statistics with Stata and with R).
