Bias and information of Bayesian adaptive testing

Weiss, David J.; McBride, James R. (1984)
Monte carlo simulation was used to investigate score bias and information characteristics of Owen’s Bayesian adaptive testing strategy and to examine possible causes of score bias. Factors investigated in three related ...

Multivariate generalizability theory in educational measurement: An empirical study

Nuβbaum, Albert (1984)
Multivariate generalizability theory was applied to the assessment of student achievement in art education. Twenty-five art students rated the paintings of 60 fourth-grade students with regard to three criteria. Paintings ...

Effects of local item dependence on the fit and equating performance of the three-parameter logistic model

Yen, Wendy M. (1984)
Unidimensional item response theory (IRT) has become widely used in the analysis and equating of educational achievement tests. If an IRT model is true, item responses must be locally independent when the trait is held ...

Comparison of IRT true-score and equipercentile observed-score "equatings"

Lord, Frederic M.; Wingersky, Marilyn S. (1984)
Two methods of ’equating’ tests are compared, one using true scores, the other using equipercentile equating of observed scores. The theory of equating is discussed. For the data studied, the two methods yield almost ...

Eigenvalue shrinkage in principal components based factor analysis

Bobko, Philip; Schemmer, F. Mark (1984)
The concept of shrinkage, as (1) a statistical phenomenon of estimator bias, and (2) a reduction in explained variance resulting from cross-validation, is explored for statistics based on sample eigenvalues. Analytic ...
