Dear friends of the Rasch-Model,
I have been told that it is possible to shift item parameters of IRT models in order to achieve a certain distribution of person-estimates for a given sample. Practically I have a graded response model estimated in a larger sample including a representative sample. now, I want to shift the parameters that the distribution of the person estimates of the representative sample is normalized (has mean = 0 and sd = 1). Actually, the distribution is slightly different, eg mean = 0.5 and sd = 1.2.
Is anyone aware how to change the item-parameters? Or is there any reference where I could look up the procedure?
