Description

1

10

ITEM

Item entry number

11

20

CODE

Response code in CODES= or *** = missing (not subtotal)

21

25

VALUE

Numerical value of the response code (directly or with KEYn=, NEWSCORE=, IVALUEx=, MISSCORE= etc.). -1 means "response is ignored"

27

30

SCORE

Score used for estimating the Rasch item measure (after recounting, weighting, etc.). -1 means "response is ignored"

31

40

UNWTD

Count of all valid response codes in data set (excludes missing except for "MISSING" lines)

41

50

UNWTD %

Percent of UNWTD responses to this item.

51

60

WTD

Count of all valid response codes (weighted with PWEIGHT=)  in data set (excludes missing except for "MISSING" lines)

61

70

WTD %

% of WTD responses to this item

71

80

AVGE MEAS

Average person measure for WTD responses

81

90

P.SD MEAS

P.SD is the population standard deviation of the person measures for WTD responses

91

100

S.E. MEAS

Standard Error of average person measure for WTD responses = sqrt (P.SD (AVGE MEAS)  /  (WTD - 1) )

101

110

OUTF MNSQ

Outfit Mean-square of weighted responses in this category, omitting responses in extreme scores

111

120

PTMA

PTMA is the point-correlation between the data code, scored 1, or non-occurrence, scored 0, of this category or distractor and the person raw scores or measures chosen by PTBISERIAL=. The computation is described in Correlations.

122

LABEL

Item label

 

Since the DISFILE= has the same number of CODES= and MISSING "***" entries for every item, the repeated fields are filled out with "0" for any unobserved response codes.

 

Percentages for non-missing response-scores are computed based on total count of non-missing response scores. Percentages for missing response-scores are computed based on total count of all response scores.

 

When CSV=Y, commas separate the values with quotation marks around the "Item label", response in CODES=, and ***. When CSV=T, the commas are replaced by tab characters.

 

Example: You wish to write a file on disk called "DISCOUNT.TXT" containing the item distractor counts from table 14.3, for use in constructing your own tables:

 DISFILE=DISCOUNT.TXT
