Vertically Equated Tests: Fact or Phantom?
Slinde, Jeffrey A.; Linn, Robert L.
Journal of Educational Measurement, 14, 1, 23-32, Spr 77

It is argued that the equipercentile procedure is superior to the linear procedure, but that neither is very satisfactory for the vertical equating problem. (Author/JKS)
