Rasch list members:
I have found an item with DIF based on 3 educational attainment groups.
The F from the ANOVA of standardized residuals is large and highly 
However, a post-hoc test shows only 1 of the groups is different from 
the other two.
Is it appropriate to split this item into 3 pseudo-items or just 2 (one 
for the group that differs and one for the 2 groups are are the same)?

More generally, what is the rule to decide how many pseudo-items to 
create when DIF is identified using more than 2 groups?
