Table 3-6. 2 The reverse derivation Wright and Masters (1982) derived the same model by proceeding in reverse to the above derivation. Forming the probability of a response in the higher of two adjacent categories in Eq. (5), conditional on the response being in one of those two categories, gives on simplification, Pr{ X ni Pr{ X ni x} x  1}  Pr{ X ni x} exp( E n  (G i  W x )) . 1  exp( E n  (G i  W x )) (27) This conditional latent response is dichotomous. It is latent again, derived as an implication of the model, as in the original derivation, because there is not a sequence of observed conditional responses, but just one response in one of the m categories.

The dichotomous RM was specialised at a subsequent point in the derivation in order to interpret Eq. (1) and two of its properties identified by Andersen (1977). This specialisation is critical but is generally ignored; ignoring this specialisation is a another source of confusion as it fails to acknowledge that categories cannot be combined in the usual way by pooling frequencies of responses in adjacent categories in the data or equivalently by adding the probabilities of adjacent categories in the model following estimation of the parameters, except in one special case that is commented upon later in the Chapter.
