  journal={SAGE Open},
The aim of this research is to compare the result of the differential item functioning (DIF) determining with hierarchical generalized linear model (HGLM) technique and the results of the DIF determining with logistic regression (LR) and item response theory–likelihood ratio (IRT-LR) techniques on the test items. For this reason, first in this research, it is determined whether the students encounter DIF with HGLM, LR, and IRT-LR techniques according to socioeconomic status (SES), in the… Expand

A Comparison of the Hierarchical Generalized Linear Model, Multiple-Indicators Multiple-Causes, and the Item Response Theory-Likelihood Ratio Test for Detecting Differential Item Functioning
The purpose of this study was to compare the DIF detection performance of the hierarchical generalized linear model (HGLM), the multiple-indicators multiple-causes (MIMIC) method, and the IRTExpand


Evaluating Type I Error and Power Rates Using an Effect Size Measure With the Logistic Regression Procedure for DIF Detection
The logistic regression (LR) procedure for differential item functioning (DIF) detection is a model-based approach designed to identify both uniform and nonuniform DIF. However, this procedure tendsExpand
