On November 18th 2021, Joost Kruis has defended his thesis Item response mechanics at the University of Amsterdam.
Statistical models for the relations between variables encompass assumptions about the underlying mechanism that generated the relations in the observed data. This dissertation introduces item response mechanics as the study of data-generating mechanisms underlying an item response, and their implementation in psychometric process-measurement models.
