This paper is about the Linear Logistic Test Model (LLTM). We demonstrate that there are infinitely many equivalent ways to specify a model. An implication is that there may well be many ways to change the specification of a given LLTM and achieve the same improvement in model fit. To illustrate this phenomenon, we analyze a real data set using a Lagrange multiplier test for the specification of the model. This Lagrange multiplier test is similar to the modification index used in structural equation modeling.
