Comparação entre algoritmos MCMC para Inferência Bayesiana em modelos dicotômicos da TRI
Gabriel Oliveira Assunção
This study aims to compare MCMC algorithms for Bayesian Inference in the 3-parameter TRI model. We consider four different algorithms already proposed inthe literature, which differ basically in relation to the use of auxiliary variables.The main objective is to investigate which algorithm is computationally moreefficient to return a sample of the (same) distribution to textit posteriori. Thecomparison is made based on computational time and effective sample size ofrelevant statistics. The comparison is made in different scenarios with respect tosample size (including items). Through it, one can see that the performance ofthe algorithms varies as the sample size increases. An extension of the Gonçalveset al. (2018) algorithm for the 4-parameter model is also presented and appliedto an Enem database.
