Formulating Latent Growth Using an Explanatory Item Response Model Approach. Mark Wilson, Xiaohui Zheng & Leah Walker McGuire
Abstract: In this paper, we present the Latent Growth Item Response Model (LG-IRM), an application of Rasch ideas to growth modeling. We focus on linear growth modeling, which means that each person is estimated to have two dimensions: an intercept estimate and a growth estimate. Polynomial growth modeling is also available, where each person will have more dimensions, for example, an acceleration dimension for quadratic growth, etc. This formulation also makes it straightforward to incorporate measurement techniques such as differential item functioning (DIF) effects, provision for polytomous responses, person and item covariates (and time varying covariates), and multiple (substantive) dimensions of growth. We provide two empirical examples to illustrate several of the models, using the ConQuest software to carry out the analyses.
