Patz, Richard J.; Junker, Brian W.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v24 n2 p146-78 Sum 1999
Demonstrates Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) techniques that are well-suited to complex models with Item Response Theory (IRT) assumptions. Develops an MCMC methodology that can be routinely implemented to fit normal IRT models, and compares the approach to approaches based on Gibbs sampling. Contains 64 references. (SLD)
