By Donatella Vicari, Akinori Okada, Giancarlo Ragozini, Claus Weihs

This quantity provides theoretical advancements, functions and computational tools for the research and modeling in behavioral and social sciences the place facts are typically complicated to discover and examine. The hard proposals offer a connection among statistical method and the social area with specific recognition to computational matters with the intention to successfully handle advanced info research problems.
The papers during this quantity stem from contributions before everything awarded on the joint overseas assembly JCS-CLADAG held in Anacapri (Italy) the place the japanese category Society and the category and knowledge research team of the Italian Statistical Society had a stimulating medical dialogue and exchange.

1 Evolution of Ability Level in Mathematics The first application concerns testing the hypothesis of absence of tiring or learningthrough-training phenomena during the administration of a series of 12 items on Mathematics (Bartolucci 2006; Bartolucci et al. 2008). In this case, we are not properly dealing with longitudinal data since all items were administered at the same occasion; however, an LM model makes sense since these items were administered in the same order to all examinees. In particular, the adopted LM model is based on a Rasch parametrization.

The main problem with this design is that of reducing the bias and guaranteeing finiteness of log-odds estimation. Our 32 L. Bertoli-Barsotti et al. approach can be explained intuitively basing on the following heuristic argument: if person v could have multiple independent attempts, say N, at item i, the difference ™v “i could be estimated on the basis of the values fvi (0) D N0 /N and fvi (1) D N1 /N, where N1 is the number of times that person v responds correctly to item i, and N0 D N N1 . Now, both N0 /N and N1 /N can always be expected to be different from both 0 and 1, for N large enough (if the model is true).
