Guo, Hongwen; Dorans, Neil J. – ETS Research Report Series, 2019
We derive formulas for the differential item functioning (DIF) measures that two routinely used DIF statistics are designed to estimate. The DIF measures that match on observed scores are compared to DIF measures based on an unobserved ability (theta or true score) for items that are described by either the one-parameter logistic (1PL) or…
