N2 - The Rasch model has been generalized and extended into what is now known as the class of Rasch models. In this chapter, we will explain in nontechnical terms the extension known as graphical loglinear Rasch models (GLLRM), which can be used to test model with departures from the pure Rasch model in terms of uniform local dependence (LD) or uniform differential item functioning (DIF). To demonstrate the utility of these models, we display the psychometric properties of the perceived stress scale (PSS) in two studies conducted in Australia and Denmark. Although the studies differed in cultural context, nature of the sample (nationally representative n = 3,857 and higher education students n = 1,552), and version of the PSS used (PSS-14 and PSS-10), consistent results were found.
