Nering, Michael L.
Applied Psychological Measurement, v21 n2 p115-27 Jun 1997
Evaluated the distribution of person fit within the computerized-adaptive testing (CAT) environment through simulation. Found that, within the CAT environment, these indexes tend not to follow a standard normal distribution. Person fit indexes had means and standard deviations that were quite different from the expected. (SLD)
