On the Loss of Information in Conditional Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Item Parameters.
Eggen, Theo J. H. M.

Shows that the concept of F-information, a generalization of Fisher information, is a useful took for evaluating the loss of information in conditional maximum likelihood (CML) estimation. With the F-information concept it is possible to investigate the conditions under which there is no loss of information in CML estimation and to quantify a loss if there is one. (SLD)
