In previous research, no relationship was found between
test factor structure and test hierarchical structure.
This study found some correspondence between
test factor structure and test inter-item dependency
structure, as measured by a log-linear model. There
was an inconsistency, however, which warrants further
study: More significant two-item interactions were
found for the set of items that had been found to be
most heterogeneous by latent trait techniques, rather
than for the more homogeneous set of items.
