Locally Dependent Latent Trait Model and the Dutch Identity Revisited.
Ip, Edward H.
Psychometrika, v67 n3 p367-86 Sep 2002
Proposes a class of locally dependent latent trait models for responses to psychological and educational tests. Focuses on models based on a family of conditional distributions, or kernel, that describes joint multiple item responses as a function of student latent trait, not assuming conditional independence. Also proposes an EM algorithm for marginal maximum likelihood estimation of the hybrid kernel model. (SLD)
