ABSTRACT
Fit indices and structural parameters generated from models reflecting all possible testlet combinations for a latent trait showed nontrivial differences in the conclusions drawn about the model. For empirical and Monte Carlo datasets, internal consistency analysis and principal components analysis proved to be of little use for testlet construction.

    Latent regression models are powerful tools for studying the relation between a latent outcome variable and observed covariates. However, model selection can not be performed using methods from standard regression models due to the unobserved nature of latent outcome variables. In this study,...
