Forgetting, Guessing, and Mastery: The Macready and Dayton Models, Revisited and Compared with a Latent Trait Approach.
van der Linden, Wim J.
Journal of Educational Statistics, v3 n4 p305-17 Win 1978
Macready and Dayton introduced two probabilistic models for mastery assessment based on an idealistic all-or-none conception of mastery. Alternatively, an application of latent trait theory to mastery testing is proposed (a three parameter logistic model) as a more plausible model for test theory. (Author/CTM)
