Sample Invariance of the Structural Equation Model and the Item Response Model: A Case Study.
Breithaupt, Krista; Zumbo, Bruno D.
Structural Equation Modeling, v9 n3 p390-412 2002
Evaluated the sample invariance of item discrimination statistics in a case study using real data, responses of 10 random samples of 500 people to a depression scale. Results lend some support to the hypothesized superiority of a two-parameter item response model over the common form of structural equation modeling, at least when responses are from different gender, age, or health groups.
