Item response models have been developed to explore change measurement, including those proposed by Fischer and his colleagues (e.g., Fischer & Pazer, 1991; Fischer & Ponocny, 1994), Andersen (1985) and Embretson (1991). In this article, we propose another multidimensional Rasch model, the multidimensional random coefficient multinomial logit (MRCML) model (Adams, Wilson, & Wang, 1997). All these models are briefly reviewed and compared. The MRCML can be applied to not only polytomous items but also investigation of variations in item difficulties. Based on variations in difficulties across occasions and items, five kinds of models are proposed. Some simulation studies were conducted to exam..
