Studied whether matching on multiple test scores would reduce false-positive error rates compared to matching on a single number-correct score using simulation. False-positive error rates were reduced for most datasets. Findings suggest that assessing the dimensional structure of a test can be important in analysis of differential item functioning (DIF).
