Relationships among Test Factor Structure, Test Hierarchical Structure, and Test Inter-Item Dependency Structure.
Bart, William M.; Palvia, Rajkumari
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 which had been found to be most heterogeneous by latent trait techniques, rather than for the more homogeneous set of items.
