New Equating Methods and Their Relationships with Levine Observed Score Linear Equating under the Kernel Equating Framework
Chen, Haiwen; Holland, Paul
Psychometrika, v75 n3 p542-557 Sep 2010
In this paper, we develop a new curvilinear equating for the nonequivalent groups with anchor test (NEAT) design under the assumption of the classical test theory model, that we name curvilinear Levine observed score equating. In fact, by applying both the kernel equating framework and the mean preserving linear transformation of post-stratification equating, we obtain a family of observed score "equipercentile" equating functions, which also includes the classical Levine observed score linear equating and the Tucker linear equating as special cases.
