Robust Estimation of Ability in the Rasch Model
Waner, Howard; Wright, Benjamin D.
Psychometrika, v45 n3 p373-92 Sep 1980
Estimating ability parameters in latent trait models in general, and in the Rasch model in particular is almost always hampered by noise in the data. In this study several alternative formulations which attempt to deal with these problems without a reparameterization are tested through a Monte Carlo simulation. (Author/JKS)
