Considering that Ben's method makes the calculation of reliability
indipendent from the sample distribution, I think that it is much closer to
the Rasch philosophy than the typical methods for calculating reliability
employed by Rasch softwares, all of which assume a normally distributed
I wonder why it's being used so little.
Definitely, I will use only this from now on.
Thank you very much.
