The main purpose of this paper is to apply likelihood-based hypothesis testing procedures to a class of latent variable models for ordinal responses that allow for uncertain answers (Colombi et al. in Scand J Stat, 2018. https://doi.org/10.1111/sjos.12366). As these models are based on some assumptions, needed to describe different respondent behaviors, it is essential to discuss inferential issues without assuming that the tested model is correctly specified. By adapting the works of White (Econometrica 50(1):1–25, 1982) and Vuong (Econometrica 57(2):307–333, 1989), we are able to compare nested models under misspecification and then contrast the limiting distributions of Wald, Lagrange multiplier/score and likelihood ratio statistics with the classical asymptotic Chi-square to show the consequences of ignoring misspecification.

Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to apply likelihood-based hypothesis testing procedures to a class of latent variable models for ordinal responses that allow for uncertain answers (Colombi et al. in Scand J Stat, 2018. https://doi.org/10.1111/sjos.12366). As these models are based on some assumptions, needed to describe different respondent behaviors, it is essential to discuss inferential issues without assuming that the tested model is correctly specified. By adapting the works of White (Econometrica 50(1):1–25, 1982) and Vuong (Econometrica 57(2):307–333, 1989), we are able to compare nested models under misspecification and then contrast the limiting distributions of Wald, Lagrange multiplier/score and likelihood ratio statistics with the classical asymptotic Chi-square to show the consequences of ignoring misspecification.
