Article 1: Kuijpers, R. E., van der Ark, L. A, Croon, M. A., & Sijtsma, K. (2016). Bias in point estimates and standard errors of Mokken’s scalability coefficients. Applied Psychological Measurement, 40, 331–345. doi:10.1177/0146621616638500
Summary: Two simulation studies were used to investigate the bias of the estimates and the standard errors of the scalability coefficients, as well as the coverage of the 95% confidence intervals.

Article 2: Mielke, P. W., Berry, K. J., & Johnston, J. E. (2005). Comparisons of continuous and discrete methods for combining probability values associated with matched-pairs t-test data. Perceptual and Motor Skills, 100, 799–805. doi:10.2466/pms.100.3.799-805
Summary: Fisher's well-known continuous method for combining independent probability values from continuous distributions is compared with an exact discrete analog of Fisher's continuous method for combining independent probability values from discrete distributions using matched-pairs t-test data.

Article 3: Fang, X., Li, J., Wong, W. K., & Fu, B. (2016). Detecting the violation of variance homogeneity in mixed models. Statistical Methods in Medical Research, 25, 2506–2520. doi:10.1177/0962280214526194
Summary: The aim in this article is to propose tests for checking this homogeneity assumption in the standard mixed-effects model and ascertain their performances.
