Abstract:

Work on item response theory was extended to include two areas that had not been extensively researched previously. They include models for test items that require more than one ability for a correct response and models for the interaction between modules of instruction that have a hierarchical relationship. For both of these types of models, estimation procedures were developed for model parameters and extensive work was done to determine the appropriate interpretation of the parameter values. This report is a summary of work performed on these modules over a three year period. Keywords Item response theory Latent trait theory Learning hierarchies Multidimensional models.
