─「Measurement Invariance in Quantitative Psychology」

Measurement invariance is a key assumption to enable comparison of individuals from different groups (e.g., gender and ethnicity). In reality, this assumption may not always hold. For example, students receiving different curricula may apply different strategies to solve an question; respondents may interpret rating scale items or category labels differently; respondents may show different response styles; statements may have different utilities for different groups of respondents; raters may exhibit different degrees of severity; latent constructs may change over time. Approaches to the detection and modeling of measurement noninvariance have been widely developed, such as multi-group analysis, latent class models, mixture models, detection of differential item (facet, statement) functioning, among others.
