Developed a new classification method for the logistic regression (LR) procedure for differential item functioning (DIF) based on methods used in the Simultaneous Item Bias test and conducted a simulation study to determine if the effect size measure affects the Type I error and power rates for the LR DIF procedure. Results show that inclusion of the effect size measure can reduce Type I error rates. (SLD)
