The importance of statistics plays a growing role in research including students. The purpose of this study is to produce psychometric measurement using Rasch Model Analysis. 173 postgraduate students were chosen randomly to give response to 51 items of Statistical Anxiety Rating Scale (STARS). The collected data were analysed using SPSS and Winstep software. Based on the analysis, the person item and item reliability indicate 0.94 and 0.92 respectively. Item separation index for both person and item was more than the cut-off point of 2.00 which is considered good. The Rasch Model analysis has shown key aspects in learning statistics to be improvised.
