This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to critically assess the quality of Crash Modification Factors (CMFs). The course covers concepts underlying the measurement of safety and the development of CMFs, key statistical issues
that affect the development of quality CMFs, key methodological issues that affect the development of quality CMFs, and the general and methodological issues and statistical thresholds used to recognize quality CMFs.
This course combines self-paced material that will orient you to CMFs and what constitutes a quality CMF followed by a web-conference that will help you evaluate CMFs found in the CMF Clearinghouse. You will need access to both a telephone and internet connection
to participate in the live web session.
