Therefore, to obtain a unique solution, an additional restriction must be imposed. , In more conventional terminology, the assumption is that the survey item is equally reliable for individuals regardless of latent attitude. This is a strong Page 24 assumption, but it is not unusual in most psychometric testing applications, and it may be relaxed in some Wiggins models if more than two waves of data are available. With Equation 5, Equations 3 and 4 may be simplified into: By Equation 7, and substituting Equation 8 into 6 yields Solving the quadratic Equation 9 for a1 yields two solutions: If by convention we posit that persons in C1 have the larger probability of a 1 response, then the positive root of Equation 10 is taken.

In the example of a dichotomous response variable, the individual's latent attitude may be at any point along a 0 1 continuum, depending on his or her particular mix of elements m0 and m1. This representation of latent attitudes as continuous is an advantage of the Coleman model over the Wiggins model, although it should be noted that the Wiggins models permit more latent attitude classes than there are manifest response states. Another difference between the Coleman model and other approaches discussed thus far is that the former assumes that the Markov process governing change in elements is continuous rather than discrete in time.
