TCCFILE= Test Characteristic Curve (TCC) and Test Information Function (TIF)
TCCFILE= specifies the file to hold the coordinates for the Test Characteristic Curve and the Test Information Function. See Test Characteristic Curve and the Test Information Function in the Graph Window, also Table 20.

The contents of the TCCFILE=
The person ability measure (theta in logits or user-scaled USCALE= units)
Test Characteristic Curve, TCC:
the expected score on the test for the MEASURE
Test Information Function, TIF:
the statistical information in the score
Standard Error of Measurement for the MEASURE when estimated from the SCORE = 1 / √ INFO
Example: www.rasch.org/memo1.htm Figure 2 shows the TCC for two person groups on the same plot. How can I do this?
These needs two analyses, but only one control file and data file. Put the group code in column 1 of the person label. Then, here is the procedure with Example0.txt - since item 19 is extreme for one group, it is omitted with IDELETE=19 from both groups
analysis 1: at the Extra Specification prompt, type the person group code for the first group:
do the analysis, then
Output Files menu:
Ouput TCCFILE= to Excel temporary file
analysis 2: at the Extra Specification prompt, type the person group code for the second group:
do the analysis, then
Output Files menu:
Ouput TCCFILE= to Excel
copy the first two columns of both Excel files into one worksheet.
scatterplot the MEASURE columns against the matching SCORE columns
