      MCQ and rater-intermediated items can be included in the same

      Then Facets supports bias analyses for any combination of facets.<br>
      <br>
      OK?<br>

          reading comprehension questions in the format of Multiple
          choice to find <i>bias
          </i>of facets (examinees, text type/genre, number of items,
          field of study,
          age, length of the passage) through MFRM knowing that the
          raters do not have a
          say in MC type in the assessment procedure due to the
          objectivity of scoring,
