Holland, Paul W.; Thayer, Dorothy T.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v25 n2 p133-83 Sum 2000
Applied the theory of exponential families of distributions to the problem of fitting the univariate histograms and discrete bivariate frequency distributions that often arise in the analysis of test scores. Considers efficient computation of the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters using Newton's Method and computationally efficient ways of obtaining the asymptotic standard errors of the fitted frequencies and proportions.
