This (unidimensional) dataset includes three parameter logistic model (3PL) item parameter estimates from simulated dataset based on items from the 1992 Iowa Test of Basic Skills vocabulary test. The data are for six groups (grades 3-8) with varying numbers of common items between adjacent grades.
A list of length two. The first element
pars is a list of length six. Each
of the list elements in
pars is a n x 3 matrix of item parameters where n
differs for each grade. The second list element in
TK07 is a list of length
five identifying the common items between adjacent groups in
pars. Each list
common is a j x 2 matrix for j common items. For example, there
are 13 common items between grades 3 and 4. The first list element in
is for the common items between these grades. The first column in the matrix show that
items 14-26 in grade 3 are the same as items 1-13 in grade 4. Similar matrices are
identified for all other grade pairs.
The parameters were obtained from Dr. Ye Tong at Pearson Educational Measurement and were used in the following article:
