Title:  Use of Person-Fit Statistics in Reporting and Analyzing National Assessment of Educational Progress Results
Description: This study investigated the usefulness of one approach to measuring the assessment accuracy of NAEP data (weighted-total-fit-mean-square) using the 1990 NAEP. The study analyzed the fit of response patterns to the measurement model across individuals; looked for group and item-type differences; and evaluated the practical significance of the weighted-total-fit-mean-square.
