Using Loss Functions for DIF Detection: An Empirical Bayes Approach.
Zwick, Rebecca; Thayer, Dorothy; Lewis, Charles
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v25 n2 p225-47 Sum 2000
Studied a method for flagging differential item functioning (DIF) based on loss functions. Builds on earlier research that led to the development of an empirical Bayes enhancement to the Mantel-Haenszel DIF analysis. Tested the method through simulation and found its performance better than some commonly used DIF classification systems. (SLD)
