Stochastic Order in Dichotomous Item Response Models for Fixed, Adaptive, and Multidimensional Tests.
van der Linden, Wim J.
Psychometrika, v63 n3 p211-26 Sep 1998
Dichotomous item response theory (IRT) models can be viewed as families of stochastically ordered distributions of responses to test items. This paper explores several properties of such distributions, especially those related to transfer to other distributions. Results are formulated as a series of theorems and corollaries that apply to dichotomous IRT models. (SLD)
