New PDF release: Bayesian Analysis of Item Response Theory Models Using SAS

By Clement A. Stone,Xiaowen Zhu

Written specifically for psychometricians, scale builders, and practitioners attracted to purposes of Bayesian estimation and version checking of merchandise reaction conception (IRT) versions, this e-book teaches you ways to complete all of this with the SAS MCMC strategy. as a result of its educational constitution, Bayesian research of merchandise reaction thought types utilizing SAS might be of instant functional use to SAS clients with a few introductory heritage in IRT versions and the Bayesian paradigm.

Working via this book’s examples, you'll how you can write the PROC MCMC programming code to estimate numerous easy and extra advanced IRT versions, together with the alternative and specification of past distributions, specification of the chance version, and interpretation of effects. in particular, you'll research PROC MCMC programming code for estimating specific types and how you can interpret effects that illustrate convergence diagnostics and inferences for parameters, in addition to effects that may be utilized by scale developers—for instance, the plotting of merchandise reaction services. moreover, you are going to how to evaluate competing IRT types for an software, in addition to review the healthy of types with using posterior predictive version checking equipment.

Numerous courses for accomplishing those analyses are supplied and annotated so you might simply alter them to your applications.
