This article reports findings from a survey addressed to measure university students’ quality of life in Cagliari. The aim to build up a synthetic indicator of students’ ‘quality of life at the university’ has been pursued by adopting an ad hoc modeling approach to scale ordered items (Item Response Models) which belongs to the family of the Generalized Linear and non Linear Mixed Models . The sensibility of the results has been deeply analyzed by setting up several models with different characteristics. A comparison study with other scaling methods has been made.
