In this study, we investigated whether preequating results agree with equating results that are based on observed operational data (postequating) for a college placement program. Specifically, we examined the degree to which item response theory (IRT) true score preequating results agreed with those from IRT true score postequating and from…

Semmes, Robert; Davison, Mark L.; Close, Catherine – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2011
