Using the Johnson-Neyman Procedure to Detect Item Bias in Personality Tests : A Proposed New Method and Practical Guidelines for Data Analysis

Tunca, Burak LU (2016) In The Wiley Handbook of Personality Assessment p.346-360
Abstract
I present an alternative to a widely used item-bias analysis procedure known as the ANOVA method. The new method is based on the Johnson-Neyman procedure, which is a multiple regression-based technique with properties that can overcome the major weaknesses of the ANOVA method. I introduce the proposed procedure in a non-technical manner, provide an illustrative example, and suggest guidelines for empirical analysis that can be readily applied in personality research.
