An active area in psychometric research has been developing models that address strategies by which examinees respond to tasks. One purpose of this chapter is to describe some of these models and the relationships among them. The other is to lay out a framework for discussing topics of this sort, foregrounding the interplay between the technical affordances of the probability-based psychometric models and the substantive arguments they are meant to support.
