Residual Diagrams Based on a Remarkably Simple Result Concerning the Variances of Maximum Likelihood Estimators.
Andersen, Erling B.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v27 n1 p19-30 Spr 2002
Presents a simple result concerning variances of maximum likelihood (ML) estimators. The result allows for construction of residual diagrams to evaluate whether ML estimators derived from independent samples can be assumed to be equal apart from random errors. Applies this result to the polytomous Rasch model. (SLD)
