Taylor Approximations to Logistic IRT Models and Their Use in Adaptive Testing.
Veerkamp, Wim J. J.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v25 n3 p307-43 Fall 2000
Showed how Taylor approximation can be used to generate a linear approximation to a logistic item characteristic curve and a linear ability estimator. Demonstrated how, for a specific simulation, this could result in the special case of a Robbins-Monro item selection procedure for adaptive testing. (SLD)
