Person-Fit to the Rasch Model Using Norm-Referenced and Criterion-Referenced Statewide Data.
Garcia-Quintana, Roan A.
Person fit in the Rasch one parameter model is investigated. The first set of data deals with grade 3 students responding to the mathematics computation and reading vocabulary subscales of the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills Forms (CTBS/S). The second set of data deals with grade 3 students responding to the Basic Skills Assessment Program pilot testing on reading and mathematics statewide objectives. The only three variables available for study with these samples were ability, sex, and race. Four tables are given to relate the CTBS/S scores with the South Carolina Basic Skills Assessment Program scores. Such things as the proportion of male/female misfitting subjects and proportion of male/female total sample and these proportions divided among blacks and whites are given. Reasons for misfits analysis and cautions about interpreting such tables are also outlined. (CE)
