The remaining one case diagnosed as BP histopathologically, was proved to be PV on DIF.
Asi, se comparan los promedios para los grupos focal y de referencia en un subtest compuesto por un conjunto de items sospechosos de mostrar DIF, lo que empareja a los participantes conforme a la puntuacion obtenida en otro subtest compuesto por el resto de los items que, se considera, no presentan DIF (subtest valido).

Testing for the presence of uniform and nonuniform DIF under ordinal logistic regression (OLR) is based on comparing three different models as follows:
La Tabla III recoge la media, la mediana y la desviacion tipica de DIF para cada asignatura junto con la significacion estadistica de la media y la mediana.
PDIC said the projection models are expected to result to better estimation procedures for determining adequacy as well as management of the DIF.
Los metodos de identificacion del DIF frecuentemente se enfocan en la opcion correcta; sin embargo, las otras opciones o las omisiones pueden ejercer un efecto importante sobre la dificultad del item y es probable que el origen del DIF se encuentre alli (Angoff, 1993).
Mantel-Haenszel methods permit DIF assessment of dichotomous and polytomous items in multiple groups simultaneously, and they can be applied both under Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory.
Different levels of measurement invariance, that is, the equivalence in the structure of the measurement and the associated item loadings and thresholds between groups, can be tested by multiple-group CFA (MG-CFA; Gregorich 2006) or item response theory (IRT)-based DIF detection approaches.
