The first part of this paper describes the use of the robust zR statistic to link test forms using the Rasch (or one-parameter logistic) model. The procedure is then extended to the two-parameter and three-parameter logistic and two-parameter partial credit (2PPC) models. A real set of data was used to illustrate the extension. The linking results illustrate the efficacy of the robust zR vis-Ã -vis some of the most commonly used processes such as the Stocking and Lord (1983) linking process.
