Additional problems for DIF detection in CATs arise from the incompleteness of the response matrix, as there will be a huge proportion of missing responses for adaptively applied operational items and many items may be responded by very few examinees.
El metodo de regresion logistica (Swaminathan & Rogers, 1990) se emplea fundamentalmente en el estudio y deteccion del DIF no uniforme que existe cuando hay interaccion entre el nivel de habilidad y los miembros del grupo, es decir, la diferencia en la probabilidad de responder correctamente, para dos grupos, no es la misma en todos los niveles de habilidad.

Statistical techniques for evaluating DIF allow us to compare any groups defined by the evaluator (for example: native/non-native population, men/women, African American/white/Hispanic) in order to guarantee that the members of the compared groups have the same probability of answering the items correctly if they present the variable under study to the same degree (Fidalgo, 1996).
