|Title:||Comparison Of Ability Estimation Methods Using Irt For Tests With Different Degrees Of Difficulty|
Adriano Ferreti; Azevedo
|Abstract:||The aim of the present study is to determine the dependence of the estimation of individual abilities obtained by item response theory (IRT) in relation to the degree of test difficulty and to evaluate how the estimation error may be affected by the estimation method employed. It is shown that abilities in the scale region with little test information are more efficiently estimated using the maximum weighted likelihood estimation (WLE) method, particularly abilities belonging to the upper part of the scale. The study also demonstrates the importance of largest tests for ability estimation.|
