The Dutch Identity: a New Tool for the Study of Item Response Models

  title={The Dutch Identity: a New Tool for the Study of Item Response Models},
  • Published 2005
The Dutch Identity is a useful way to reexpress the basic equations of item response models that relate the manifest probabilities to the item response functions (IRFs) and the latent trait distribution. The identity may be exploited in several ways. For example: (a) to suggest how item response models behave for large numbers of i tems--they are approximate submodels of second-order loglinear models for 2 J tables; (b) to suggest new ways to assess the dimensionality of the latent trait… CONTINUE READING
