An Investigation of the Item Parameter Recovery Characteristics of a Gibbs Sampling Procedure.
Baker, Frank B.
Applied Psychological Measurement, v22 n2 p153-69 Jun 1998
Investigated the item-parameter recovery characteristics of a Gibbs sampling method (J. Albert, 1992) for item-response theory item-parameter estimation and compared them to those from the BILOG computer program. Item-parameter recoveries were similar for both approaches for larger data sets, but overall, BILOG performance was superior. (SLD)
