Abstract
We examined financial literacy among Italian college students using Rasch analysis. Our findings support the appeal of adopting such technique in measuring financial literacy: the set of information provided is not limited to a crude figure, indicating whether the population has passed or failed the test; on the contrary, it provides useful information on the specific areas where deficiencies are occurring the most and which specific group presents the highest knowledge deficit
Keywords
