Conditional Scale-Score Standard Errors of Measurement under Binomial and Compound Binomial Assumptions.
Brennan, Robert L.; Lee, Won-Chan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Develops two procedures for estimating individual-level conditional standard errors of measurement for scale scores, assuming tests of dichotomously scored items. Compares the two procedures to a polynomial procedure and a procedure developed by L. Feldt and A. Qualls (1998) using data from the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. Contains 22 references.…

The Relative Appropriateness of Eight Measurement Models for Analyzing Scores from Tests Composed of Testlets.
Lee, Guemin; Dunbar, Stephen B.; Frisbie, David A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Conceptualized eight different types of measurement models for a test composed of testlets and studied the goodness of fit of those models to data using data from the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills and simulated data. The essentially tau-equivalent model and the congeneric model provided worse model fit than the other measurement models. (SLD)
