Trait Level Estimation for Nonfitting Response Vectors.
Meijer, Rob R.; Nering, Michael L.
Applied Psychological Measurement, v21 n4 p321-36 Dec 1997
Used three scoring methods (maximum likelihood estimation, expected a posteriori estimation, and biweight estimation) to estimate the latent trait values when nonmodel response vectors (NRVs) were present. Also investigated the relationship between the detection rate of a person-fit index and the error in the latent trait estimate. Discusses the influence of NRVs. (SLD)
