Inferential conditions in the statistical detection of measurement bias

Millsap, Roger E.; Meredith, William (1992)
Measurement bias in an observed variable Y as a measure of an unobserved variable W exists when the relationship of Y to W varies among populations of interest. Bias is often studied by examining population differences ...

Effect of sample size, number of biased items, and magnitude of bias on a two-stage item bias estimation method

Miller, M. David; Oshima, T. C. (1992)
A two-stage procedure for estimating item bias was examined with six indexes of item bias and with the Mantel-Haenszel (MH) statistic; the sample size, the number of biased items, and the magnitude of the bias were ...

Testing hypotheses about methods, traits, and communalities in the direct-product model

Bagozzi, Richard P.; Yi, Youjae (1992)
The direct-product model has been suggested as a procedure for estimating multiplicative effects of traits and methods in multitrait-multimethod matrices. Research on the direct-product model is extended in two ways. ...

Polynomial algorithms for item matching

Armstrong, Ronald D.; Jones, Douglas H. (1992)
To estimate test reliability and to create parallel tests, test items frequently are matched. Items can be matched by splitting tests into parallel test halves, by creating T splits, or by matching a desired test form. ...

Effects of response format on diagnostic assessment of scholastic achievement

Birenbaum, Menucha; Tatsuoka, Kikumi K.; Gutvirtz, Yaffa (1992)
The effect of response format on diagnostic assessment of students’ performance on an algebra test was investigated. Two sets of parallel, open-ended (OE) items and a set of multiple-choice (MC) items-which were ...
