‘volition and meaningfulness’ and the third factor
‘human spirit’. Each of these designations became
group titles for item groups. After building a 2
parameter logistic model, we examined item
parameters, the ability parameter and item
information of the model. We found, however,
there were no items that reflected any difference
among examinees of high ability in the first and
third groups. But we also found that among the
groups, especially the second, there were mostly
only easy items and few difficult items. Additionally,
in the first group it was found that about half of
the examinees showed strong ‘self-consciousness
and values’ and the other half were found to have
weak one. But in the second group almost every
examinee showed strong ‘volition and
meaningfulness’, while the third group had more
than two-thirds of its members showing a strong
‘human spirit’. We conclude that more survey
