Abstract

This chapter demonstrates the elegant simplicity of the underlying concept on which the partial credit model (PCM) was built. This provides a valuable basis for understanding this highly influential polytomous item response theory (IRT) model, including its relationship to other models and the reasons for its widespread use.
