I have a large sample size of n=3798 persons to Rasch analyze a survey instrument of 14 items (with 4-point ordinal response options.). Using Winsteps, I noticed that the person measures ranged from -12.16 to 7.16 logits. I noticed further that around 500 persons with logits/measures of greater than 7.0 have outfit and infit mean squares of zero..Many persons (around 800) have outfit and infit mean squares outside the 0.5 to1.5 range. Is it a good practice to remove or exclude the persons from the analysis those with zero outfit and infit mean squares?
Your inputs are highly appreciated.
