Abstract

This commentary considers the impact of applying IRT to a parent-report measure of ADHD for the purposes of reducing racial disparities in the instrument's performance. It dwells on the difficulties of assessing complex, dynamic conditions such as ADHD and the particular problems presented by cultural variations in how the condition presents itself and informants view the behaviors tied to it.
