Frequently, candidates at aptitude multiple choice test miss attention, motivation or preparation and show underachievement or overachievement. Similarly, at surveys respondents show frequently misfitting patterns of responses. Their result does not correspond any more to their true aptitude or attitude, an inappropriate response pattern being obtained. New multidimensional models specific to polytomous responses circumvent these situations and diminish considerably the associated person bias. Multidimensional polytomous item response models adding new person parameters to the trait of the candidate are proposed. In the spirit of previous Raiche’s dichotomous responses IRT propositions, like the discrimination and don’t know item parameters, these models offer fluctuation and don’t know person parameters. Estimation methods, results from simulation showing the efficacy of these models and recommendations for the design of testing situations will be presented. [less ▲]

Several authors (Molenaar & Hoijtink, 1990; Meijer & Sijtsma, 2001) have shown that several person-fit statistics present some important limitations. One issue is that the distribution of some parametric person-fit statistics is unknown. Another important issue is that the distribution of person-fit indexes is most often derived under the true ability level. In this situation, replacing the true ability by some estimate can seriously affect the distribution of these indexes. Snijders (2001) proposed a method to correct the mean and the variance of many parametric person-fit statistics to be approximately standard normally distributed, and derived the corrected version of the lz index. The purpose of this paper is to apply this correction to other well-known parametric indexes, and to compare them with their classical versions. The simulation results indicate that the standardized indexes have empirical type I errors close to the nominal significance level, and that the corrected indexes outperform their classical versions in this regard.

Les méthodes de recherche en éducation se sont beaucoup développées au cours des dernières années. Pour les soutenir, des outils informatiques permettent d’automatiser diverses tâches répétitives et fastidieuses, ainsi que d’accélérer leur vitesse d’exécution. La capacité de réaliser la simulation, par méthodes stochastiques ou non stochastiques, de phénomènes impossibles à imaginer auparavant est une de ces tâches. Dans ce chapitre, nous définirons la notion de simulation en contexte de recherche, présenterons des principes et des méthodologies spécifiques de la mise en oeuvre d’une simulation, et nous illustrerons ces principes et méthodologies à partir de quelques exemples tirés de nos travaux de recherche.

In this article the authors focus on the issue of the nonuniqueness of the maximum likelihood (ML) estimator of proficiency level in item response theory (with special attention to logistic models). The usual maximum a posteriori (MAP) method offers a good alternative within that framework; however, this article highlights some drawbacks of its use. The authors then propose an iteratively based MAP estimator (IMAP), which can be useful in detecting multiple local likelihood maxima. The efficiency of the IMAP estimator is studied and is compared to the ML and MAP methods by means of a simulation study. [less ▲]
