Simulation Studies of the Effects of Small Sample Size and Studied Item Parameters in SIBTEST and Mantel-Haenszel Type I Error Performance.
Roussos, Louis A.; Stout, William F.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v33 n2 p215-30 Sum 1996
Investigated Type I error performances of the SIBTEST and Mantel-Haenszel procedures for detecting differential item functioning (DIF) using simulation. Results of small sample simulation show no large differences in Type I error performances for the two techniques. Discusses results of a second simulation which shows some advantages for SIBTEST.
