I have been asked some questions following a seminar and would
appreciate some advice before responding.
The main question is about unidemensionality and that unidimensionality
found in one sample may not hold elsewhere.
Do we really have to investigate unidimensionality and then re-calibrate
the items (and people) always starting from zero whenever we want to
apply Rasch measurement, or, do we calibrate our scale with confidence
on one group and then apply those findings elsewhere even in (quite)
Any advice would be appreciated as well as any comments on novice or
mistaken assumptions that I have made in phrasing the questions.
