Different computer computed different results?
« on: October 05, 2016, 06:39:34 AM »
Hello,
I run conquest from my computer and I tried to run it on my friend computer with the same data and control file, but unfortunately I got a little bit different results especially on AIC value, Final Deviance and Plausible value every person. I want to know why this kind of issue could happen? and is it possible to get this kind of result?
I checked all of the data and control file, but all is same. Please give some understanding about this kind of issue.
Thank you so  much.

Hello

Yes, small difference are normal and caused by different random starting values and random draws for plausible values.
