• 1960) Probabilistic models for some intelligence and attainment tests. (rasch.org)
• In the wake of what Rasch referred to as Wright's "almost unbelievable activity in this field" in the period from 1960 to 1972, Rasch's ideas entered the mainstream in high-stakes testing, professional certification and licensure examinations, and in research employing tests, and surveys and assessments across a range of fields.

• ###### probability
• Specifically, in the original Rasch model, the probability of a correct response is modeled as a logistic function of the difference between the person and item parameter. (wikipedia.org)
• When a person's location on the latent trait is equal to the difficulty of the item, there is by definition a 0.5 probability of a correct response in the Rasch model. (wikipedia.org)
• These models also assume unidimensionality but posit that the probability of endorsing an item is proportional to the distance between the items standing on the unidimensional trait and the standing of the respondent. (wikipedia.org)

• ###### invariant
• By requiring measures to remain the same (invariant) across different tests measuring the same thing, Rasch models make it possible to test the hypothesis that the particular challenges posed in a curriculum and on a test coherently represent the infinite population of all possible challenges in that domain. (wikipedia.org)
• This also implies that Rasch point-estimates are invariant when the data fit the Rasch model. (rasch.org)
• ###### 1995

• ###### respondents
• In practice, actual data from respondents do not closely match Guttman's deterministic model. (wikipedia.org)

• In Rasch measurement, we define measurement as the successful discovery of the structure of quantity in the data (Michell, 1990, 1997), tantamount to data fitting the model. (rasch.org)
• Statements of this sort are permitted regardless of whether the data fit the model or not, as we do not infer anything from the comparison of Mary and John beyond the number of correctly answered items. (rasch.org)
• Justification of study size is hardly provided, especially when a Rasch model is planned for analysing the data in a 2-group comparison study. (biomedcentral.com)

• Thus if X {\displaystyle X} and Y {\displaystyle Y} are taken to be imperfect measurements of underlying variables X ′ {\displaystyle X'} and Y ′ {\displaystyle Y'} with independent errors, then r x ′ y ′ {\displaystyle r_{x'y'}} estimates the true correlation between X ′ {\displaystyle X'} and Y ′ {\displaystyle Y'} .
