Statistical Methods

The articles below represent of mix of more technically oriented studies. Much of this more technical material facilitates development of better methods for examining substantive problems. For example, the work on 2x2 tables has a strong relationship to differential item functioning (DIF), which in turn relates to studies of group differences using multidimensional item response theory (MIRT). Finally, MIRT can be used to report more accurate diagnostic information from test results.
