The talk discusses an exploratory graphical modeling approach for evaluating local item dependence in cognitively diagnostic models (CDMs). CDMs are restricted latent class models that describe an individual’s status on a set of discrete latent attributes (e.g., mastery of cognitive skills, pathological symptoms). In this talk, I present an exploratory graphical modeling approach to evaluating local item dependence within the CDMs. The model integrates a pairwise Markov random field to the generalized CDM so that items’ interdependence can be modeled via an undirected spatial network.
