Multilevel Rasch Models
Over the past few years, several studies have investigated and demonstrated the relationships between generalized linear mixed models (GLIMM) and item response modeling. Some benefits associated with this GLIMM-based modeling framework include the modeling of nested structure of data, such as examinees nested within schools (Kamata, 2001), of multidimensional measures (Cheong & Raudenbush, 2000), and of wider class of item response models, such as 2PL item response model (Rijmen et al., 2003).
