Data of simulation study for preliminary detection of problematic items in item factor analysis


It was carried out a simulation study that took into account the item properties of extremeness (difficulty, location) and consistency. The background idea is that a scale should be defined by a minimum of five items. In addition, averaged bias and sampling error of the five items were also inspected. Files included in the dataset: Data LINEAL: The items are analysed based on linear factor analysis; Data GRADED: The items are analysed based on no-linear factor analysis
