Limits on Log Odds Ratios for Unidimensional Item Response Theory Models
Haberman, Shelby J.; Holland, Paul W.; Sinharay, Sandip
Psychometrika, v72 n4 p551-561 Dec 2007
Bounds are established for log odds ratios (log cross-product ratios) involving pairs of items for item response models. First, expressions for bounds on log odds ratios are provided for one-dimensional item response models in general. Then, explicit bounds are obtained for the Rasch model and the two-parameter logistic (2PL) model. Results are also illustrated through an example from a study of model-checking procedures. The bounds obtained can provide an elementary basis for assessment of goodness of fit of these models.
