Abstract [en]

Item response theory (IRT) observed-score kernel equating is described for thenon-equivalent groups with anchor test equating design using either chain equating orpost-stratification equating. The equating function is treated in a multivariate setting andthe asymptotic covariance matrices of IRT observed-score kernel equating functions arederived. Equating is conducted using the two-parameter and three-parameter logisticmodels with simulated data and data from a standardized achievement test. The resultsshow that IRT observed-score kernel equating offers small standard errors and low equatingbias under most settings considered.
