Standard Errors of Equating for the Percentile Rank-Based Equipercentile Equating with Log-Linear Presmoothing
Wang, Tianyou
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v34 n1 p7-23 2009
Holland and colleagues derived a formula for analytical standard error of equating using the delta-method for the kernel equating method. Extending their derivation, this article derives an analytical standard error of equating procedure for the conventional percentile rank-based equipercentile equating with log-linear smoothing. This procedure is illustrated with real test data and is evaluated using both the bootstrap and the parametric bootstrap (simulation) methods for three different equating designs. (Contains 4 tables and 4 figures.)
