Effect of Noise in the Three-Parameter Logistic Model.
In a preceding research report, ONR/RR-82-1 (Information Loss Caused by Noise in Models for Dichotomous Items), observations were made on the effect of noise accommodated in different types of models on the dichotomous response level. In the present paper, focus is put upon the three-parameter logistic model, which is widely used among researchers. An emphasis is put upon the speed of convergence to the normality of the conditional distribution of the maximum likelihood estimate, given a specific ability level. (Author)
