Using Item-Specific Instructional Information in Achievement Modeling.
Muthen, Bengt O.
Psychometrika, v54 n3 p385-96 Sep 1989
A method for detecting instructional sensitivity (item bias) in test items is proposed. This method extends item response theory by allowing for item-specific variation in measurement relations across students' varying instructional backgrounds. Item bias detection is a by-product. Traditional and new methods are compared. (SLD)
