Please post your tag synonym suggestions as new answers in this thread, one answer per suggestion. Upvote answers where you believe that the suggested tags should be made synonyms, and downvote answers where you believe the tags should remain separate. Well upvoted suggestions will be eventually implemented by the moderators (and then the corresponding answers will be deleted).

    $\begingroup$ @whuber, if this is inappropriate or unhelpful, then I can delete it, but my goal is the opposite: I don't want you (or the other mods) to have to spend time thinking about this & doing a lot of extra research. I'm hoping to bring this to the attention of the community, which, by voting (commenting, etc), will have done all of that for you guys. Nb, w/ respect to lme & multilevel, I'm not sure anyone will have the requisite upvotes--there have only been 3 questions w/ multilevel, according to it's page. $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica Jun 7 '12 at 16:59

    $\begingroup$ I have been through communication which now has 26 left which are about communications in general. I retagged some as presentation, some as terminology, and just deleted the tag on others. So ready to merge the other two. $\endgroup$ – mdewey Feb 3 at 15:13

    $\begingroup$ I don't know enough about the topic. I could imagine there is a sufficient distinction, but 64/85 have both tags... It would be helpful for someone expert on the topic to weigh in. $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica Feb 19 at 21:10

  • $\begingroup$ -1, these are not the same thing. I wouldn't make them synonyms. $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica Feb 19 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ OK, what is the difference? The overlap in use is large! $\endgroup$ – kjetil b halvorsen Feb 19 at 21:06

    $\begingroup$ IRT is a kind of SEM w/ binary data (typically questions from standardized tests); item-analysis is whether items make a contribution to something, eg, when developing a questionnaire. They certainly aren't orthogonal, but they aren't the same thing. $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica Feb 19 at 21:09
