Identifiability of Parameters in Item Response Models with Unconstrained Ability Distributions. Research Report. ETS RR-05-24
Haberman, Shelby J.
ETS Research Report Series, Dec 2005
If a parametric model for the ability distribution is not assumed, then the customary two-parameter and three-parameter logistic models for item response analysis present identifiability problems not encountered with the Rasch model. These problems impose substantial restrictions on possible models for ability distributions.
