Thank you for your question, Jun Kim.

In bias/DIF analysis (and in statistics in general), the standard error is
dominated by the number of observations. The more observations, the smaller
the standard error. Perhaps you do not have enough data for the analysis you
want to perform.

My concern is that the magnitude of model standard error in the
bias/interaction report is relatively big across interactions. How do I
interpret that? What should I do if the model s.e. is big?
