Finite Measures from Perfect Scores.
Wilson, Mark; Wright, Benjamin D.
A common problem in practical educational research is that of perfect scores which result when latent trait models are used. A simple procedure for managing the perfect and zero response problem encountered in converting test scores into measures is presented. It allows the test user to chose among two or three reasonable finite representations of these boundary scores. A convenient approximation is given which is accurate in all but highly assymetric situations when the procedure is applied to the Partial Credit model. (Author/HFG)
