Abstract

IRT (Item Response Theory) is a theory for scoring of tests, and it used for some test systems such as TOEFL. IRT's estimation is item parameter for each question, and examinee’s ability parameter. We propose a new method to estimate parameter of IRT using the Holonomic Gradient Method. When we use Holonomic Gradient Method, we check target function is Holonomic Function. Our target function is 2 Parameter Logistic Model IRT's Likelihood Function. In this paper, we show target IRT's Likelihood Function is Holonomic Function.
