ROC Curve Estimation: An Overview 7 diagonal. Moreover, it is a property of the optimal ROC curve to establish deci-sion rules (Huang and Pepe, ). However, a problem with using the bi-normal ROC model is that it is not concave in (0, 1) unless b = 1, as noted by Huang and Pepe ().

OCCs show the relationship between the probability of choosing a particular option for a test item and individuals’ latent ability (Ramsay, ). ICCs are related to the level of latent trait measured, and they provide information about the mean

Item characteristic curves, plots of the probability of a correct response as a function of ability, are given by Pr(yij = 1|ηj) = exp(νi +λiηj) 1+exp(νi +λiηj). and shown for this model (using estimates under M1 in Table 2) in Figure 2. We then specify a structural model for ability ηj.

This paper presents a nonparametric approach to estimating item characteristic curves (ICCs) when they should be monotonic. First, it addresses the uni-dimensional case; before generalizing it to the multidimensional :// Item characteristic curves have essentially three different shapes corresponding to three different formulations about how items combine into a scale.

Spanning items have characteristic curves that essentially are straight lines stretching across the range of entity variation.

However, they are used in the graded response model as an intermediate step to obtain the item category characteristic curves for a polytomous Item response theory (IRT) is an important method of assessing the validity of measurement scales that is underutilized in the field of psychiatry.

IRT describes the relationship between a latent trait (e.g., the construct that the scale proposes to assess), the Figure 3: The item response function of the one-parameter logistic (1PL) model The simplest IRT model for a dichoto-mous item has only one item parameter.
