KYKO measures the intensity of five dimensions of human traits and to make comparisons between them as to which is dominant all the way to which is least intense. For valid comparisons, these five dimensions must necessarily be measured on the same scale. This is very much like comparing the heights of two people where valid comparison of height can only be made if they are both measured in centimeters or both in inches. If one is measured in inches and the other in centimeters, we will need to know the "equation" between centimeters and inches, convert one into the other, and then make the valid comparison. The idea of measurement is that there must be objectivity and hence it requires the construction of a variable on a linear scale. For the measurement of the KYKO dimensions, all five are equated on to the same logit scale using Rasch Model. Rasch Model puts each dimension on a logit scale, but to ensure that they are on the same logit scale; these dimensions should not be measured independently for each respondent. They must first be equated, through which each item on the five dimensions are calibrated on a single logit scale, and hence all person measures for the five dimensions are also on a common logit scale. This is the accuracy we need for KYKO interpretations and profiles to be more accurate. Note that raw scores are not linear. Depending on how a person obtains his or her raw score total for each dimension, whether or not they are from items that are easy to agree to or more difficult to agree to, will affect their final measure on that dimension.
