An Examination of Item Context Effects, DIF, and Gender DIF.
Ryan, Katherine E.; Chiu, Shuwan
Applied Measurement in Education, v14 n1 p73-90 2001
Examined whether patterns of gender differential item functioning (DIF) in parcels of items are influenced by changes in item position. Findings for more than 2,000 college freshmen taking a test of mathematics suggest that the amounts of gender DIF and DIF present in item parcels tend not to be influenced by changes in item position.
