A Note on the Relation between Factor Analytic and Item Response Theory Models
Kamata, Akihito; Bauer, Daniel J.
Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v15 n1 p136-153 Jan 2008
The relations among several alternative parameterizations of the binary factor analysis model and the 2-parameter item response theory model are discussed. It is pointed out that different parameterizations of factor analysis model parameters can be transformed into item response model theory parameters, and general formulas are provided. Illustrative data analysis is provided to demonstrate the transformations. (Contains 5 tables, 1 figure, and 5 footnotes.)
