How to Treat Omitted Responses in Rasch Model-Based Equating

Abstract

This study investigated the impact of the coding scheme on IRT-based true score equating under a.common-item nonequivalent groups design. Two different coding schemes under investigation were carried out.by assigning either a zero or a blank to a missing item response in the equating data. The investigation involved.a comparison study using actual large scale data and then Monte Carlo simulations for a systematic inspection on.the topic. The recommendations on the basis of the findings of the study were made to treat omitted responses.as not-administered rather than as wrong, and use a large sample size to ensure the accuracy of the screening.tools such as the displacement index and the robust-z statistic during equating.
