1. DiTrapani, John B. IRT in SPSS: The development of a new software tool to conduct item response models.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2016, The Ohio State University

Item Response Theory (IRT) is a modeling framework that can be applied to a large variety of different research questions in many different disciplines. Currently, there are many software packages that can be used to conduct IRT, but they can be difficult to access for a practitioner who primarily uses software like SPSS. To make IRT models more accessible for the general researcher, a tool has been created that can easily run one-parameter IRT (1PL) models on SPSS without any required downloads or add-ons. This tool takes advantage of the fact that a 1PL model is a member of the generalized linear mixed model (GLMM) family by utilizing the built-in SPSS function for GLMMs. It can run 1PL models with person and item covariates, DIF analyses, multidimensional models, IRTree models, and many other variations. It also provides the user with item and person fit statistics, item characteristic curves, item information functions, and several other options. Comparisons show that the estimates provided by this macro are very similar to those estimated from other software packages. Advisors/Committee Members: Jeon, Minjeong (Advisor).
