Written specially for psychometricians, scale builders, and practitioners attracted to functions of Bayesian estimation and version checking of merchandise reaction thought (IRT) types, this ebook teaches you the way to complete all of this with the SAS MCMC approach. as a result of its instructional constitution, Bayesian research of merchandise reaction thought types utilizing SAS can be of fast functional use to SAS clients with a few introductory historical past in IRT types and the Bayesian paradigm.

Working via this book’s examples, you are going to methods to write the PROC MCMC programming code to estimate a variety of basic and extra advanced IRT versions, together with the alternative and specification of previous distributions, specification of the chance version, and interpretation of effects. particularly, you'll examine PROC MCMC programming code for estimating specific types and how you can interpret effects that illustrate convergence diagnostics and inferences for parameters, in addition to effects that may be utilized by scale developers—for instance, the plotting of merchandise reaction capabilities. moreover, you are going to examine competing IRT versions for an program, in addition to review the healthy of versions with using posterior predictive version checking equipment.

Numerous courses for engaging in those analyses are supplied and annotated that you can simply alter them in your applications.
