Bayesian network models offer a large degree of flexibility for modeling dependence among observables (item outcome variables) from the same task that may be dependent. This paper explores four design patterns for modeling locally dependent observations from the same task: • No context—Ignore dependence among observables. • Compensatory context—Introduce a latent variable, context, to model task-specific knowledge and use a compensatory model to combine this with the relevant proficiencies… CONTINUE READING
