This involves assessing the abilities of individuals on each component as well as assessing the construct representation of the items. Thus, Embretson's goal requires the application of different types of models than those applied in the research described above, and the models, in tum, require different types of data. The several latent trait models that have been proposed that are simultaneously psychometric models and mathematical models include the linear logistic latent trait model (LLTM; Fischer, 1973), the multicomponent latent trait model (MLTM; Whitely, 1980b), and the general component latent trait model (GLTM; Embretson, 1984).

For example, people are able to recognize when relational expressions like "member of' and "component of' are used appropriately, as in 1) Simpson is a member of the Psychology Department. 2) The carburetor is a component of the engine.
