Details

Data were simulated under the 3PL (resp) and 3PLu (resp2) (see plmodel). For the 3PL scenario, the random number generator's seed was set to 277. For the 3PLu scenario, the random number generator's seed was set to 167. Person parameters \(\theta_{i}\) of 10000 persons were drawn from the standard normal distribution. Item difficulties \(b_{j}\) of 10 items (under the classical IRT parametrization) were drawn from the standard normal distribution. Item discrimination parameters \(a_{j}\) were drawn from a log-normal distribution with a mean of \(0\) and a variance of \(0.0625\) on the log scale. For the 3PL, guessing parameters \(g_{j}\) were drawn from a uniform distribution with a lower limit of \(0.1\) and an upper limit of \(0.2\). For the 3PLu, upper asymptote parameters \(u_{j}\) were drawn from a uniform distribution with a lower limit of \(0.8\) and an upper limit of \(0.9\). In both scenarios, a \(10000\) x \(10\) matrix based on realizations of a uniform distribution with a lower limit of \(0\) and an upper limit of \(1\) was generated and compared to a \(10000\) x \(10\) matrix based on the probability function under the respective model. If the probability of person \(i\) solving item \(j\) exceeded the corresponding realization of the uniform distribution, this cell of the matrix was set to \(1\), e.g., person \(i\) solved item \(j\).
