Outcome measures intend to provide quantification of a trait, which cannot be directly observed, also known as a latent trait or construct.
It was shown how this approach could be used to construct norms-referenced latent trait estimations to select test items which are optimally fitted to the examined population.
For example, the author spends a significant amount of book space, and indeed the reader's cognitive energies, in outlining the relative merits of modern test theory or latent trait models (notably Item Response Theory and the Rasch model) as compared to classical test theory.
IRT relates the observable responses to items on a test (correct or incorrect) to the unobservable latent trait that the test is intended to measure .
Some Latent Trait Models and Their Use in Inferring an Examinee's Ability.
Each latent trait, or construct, was measured by three methods: one difference score method and two non-difference score alternative methods.
The basic principle of IRT (also called latent trait theory) is that for any fixed values of the latent traits the observed variables are mutually statistically independent; this has come to be known as the principle of local independence (Lazarsfeld, 1950, Lazarsfeld & Henry, 1968).
