An Empirical Comparison of Item Response Theory and Classical Test Theory Item/Person Statistics. (August 2004) Troy Gerard Courville, B.S., Louisiana State UniversityShreveport; M.S., Texas A&M University Chair of Advisory Committee: Dr. Bruce Thompson In the theory of measurement, there are two competing measurement frameworks, classical test theory and item response theory. The present study empirically examined, using large scale norm-referenced data, how the item and person statistics… 
An empirical comparison of Item Response Theory and Classical Test Theory
Based on nonlinear models between the measured latent variable and the item response, item response theory (IRT) enables independent estimation of item and person parameters and local estimation of
INVESTIGATE INTO INVARIANCE PROPERTIES OF ITEM RESPONSE THEORY ( IRT ) BY TWO AND THREE PARAMETER MODELS
Despite the well-known theoretical differences between item response theory (IRT) and classical test theory (CTT), research examining their empirical properties has failed to reveal consistent,
Relationships Among Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory Frameworks via Factor Analytic Models
TLDR
A small Monte Carlo study was carried out to assess the comparability between the item and person statistics obtained from the frameworks of IRT and CTT with UNV assumption, showing neither framework showing an advantage over the other.
Applying Item Response Theory Models to Entrance Examination for Graduate Studies: Practical Issues and Insights
Item response theory is a psychometric framework for the design, analysis, and scaling of standardized assessments, psychological instruments, and other measurement tools. Despite its increasing use
Comparative Analysis of Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory Based Item Parameter Estimates of Senior School Certificate Mathematics Examination
The study compared Classical Test Theory (CTT) and Item Response Theory (IRT)-estimated item difficulty and item discrimination indices in relation to the ability of examinees in Senior School
Comparison of Item Statistics of Physics Achievement Test using Classical Test and Item Response Theory Frameworks
In this study, the author examined the comparability of item statistics generated from the frameworks of classical test theory (CTT) and 2-parameter model of item response theory (IRT). A 60-item
Item Response Theory: An Introduction to Latent Trait Models to Test and Item Development
TLDR
A comprehensive overview of the IRT and its procedures as applied to test item development and analysis is provided and some suggestions for test developers and test specialists at all levels to adopt IRT for its identified crucial theoretical and empirical gains over CTT are concluded.
Two approaches to psychometric process: Classical test theory and item response theory
In the development of Measurement Theory, there are two main statistical approaches to describe characteristics of an individualand to analyze abilities and latent attributes of a subject which are
A Systematic Literature Review : the Role of Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory in Item Analysis to Determine the Quality of Mathematics Tests
This research aims to: 1) find out the role of Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory in item analysis, and 2) find out the role of Classical Test Theory and Item Response theory on the
Psychometric Analysis of Economics Achievement Test Using Item Response Theory
