Example text

Rasch’s measurement model, which is described and applied in the chapters of this book, made objective measurement a possibility in the social and behavioural sciences. 7. REFERENCES Rasch, G (1960). Probabilistic Models for Some Intelligence and Attainment Tests. Copehanhagen: Danish Institute for Educational Research. Chapter 3 THE RASCH MODEL EXPLAINED David Andrich Murdoch University Abstract: This Chapter explains the Rasch model for ordered response categories by demonstrating the latent response structure and process compatible with the model.

Human Variability But it was not only inanimate objects that were impossibly complex; people were too. Again, a strategy for dealing with this complexity was to 2. Objective Measurement 17 focus on particular ways in which people varied. Some humans were faster runners than others, some had greater strength, some were better hunters, more graceful dancers, superior warriors, more skilled craftsmen, wiser teachers, more compassionate counsellors, more comical entertainers, greater orators. The list of dimensions on which humans could be compared was unending, and the language we developed to describe this variability was vast and impressive.

Both derivations are now explained. Before proceeding, and because the RM for dichotomous responses is central to the derivations, it is noted that it takes the form Pr{ X ni x} exp x ( E n  G i ) ; x  {0,1} 1  exp( E n  G i ) (11) where in this case there is only the one threshold, the location of the item, Gi . 1 The original derivation In the original derivation of the model (Andrich, 1978a), an instantaneous latent dichotomous response process {Ynki y}, y  {0,1} was postulated at each threshold k with the probability of the response given by Pr{Ynnki y} exp y (D k ( E n  (G i  W ki ))) /{1  exp D k ( E n  (G i  W ki ))} (12) 3.
