DOS version prior to WINSTEPS

Windows 7, 64-bit Windows: Please run in DOSBox
BIGSTEPS often does not run under recent versions of Windows

For complete information about Windows-native WINSTEPS.

Free version of BIGSTEPS 2.82 can be downloaded here. Users of earlier versions, please update to this.

Bigsteps is a DOS-based Rasch measurement program. It has most of the functionality of WINSTEPS, but lacks a Windows interface and recent enhancements. Its capacity is 3,000 items and 20,000 persons (cases). You may copy, distribute and use it without charge or time-limit. Of course, we hope you will want to purchase the full version of WINSTEPS (which can analyze 30,000 items and 10,000,000 persons, and has many other additional capabilities).

Free evaluation/student/demo version of WINSTEPS, called MINISTEP. Contains all Winsteps features except limited to 25 items and 75 persons (cases). Please copy, distribute and use.
