The dimensionality of a reading comprehension assessment with non-stem equivalent multiplechoice (MC) items and open-ended (OE) items was analyzed with German test data of 8523 9-graders. We found that a two-dimensional IRT model with within-item multidimensionality, where MC and OE items load on a general latent dimension and OE items additionally load on a nested latent dimension, had a superior fit compared to an unidimensional model (p ≤ .05). Correlations between general cognitive… CONTINUE READING
