Q3 - Local Dependence Index

The Q3 index is an essential analysis for observing examinees' behaviour in terms of ``ability'' and ``speed.'' The result of the index will be used to evaluate if the test is fair for all students without the level of their abilities. In this section, we will review an educational application, Q3 - local dependence index, and will implement and benchmark the application in HPJava.
