Description

ECPE dataset from the Templin and Hoffman (2013) tutorial of specifying cognitive diagnostic models in Mplus.

Usage

1

Format

The format of the data is a list containing the dichotomous item response data data (2922 persons at 28 items) and the Q-matrix q.matrix (28 items and 3 skills):

List of 2
$ data :'data.frame':
..$ id : int [1:2922] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...
..$ E1 : int [1:2922] 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 ...
..$ E2 : int [1:2922] 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
..$ E3 : int [1:2922] 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
..$ E4 : int [1:2922] 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
[...]
..$ E27: int [1:2922] 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 ...
..$ E28: int [1:2922] 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
$ q.matrix:'data.frame':
..$ skill1: int [1:28] 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 ...
..$ skill2: int [1:28] 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 ...
..$ skill3: int [1:28] 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 0 ...

The skills are

skill1: Morphosyntactic rules

skill2: Cohesive rules

skill3: Lexical rules.

Details

The dataset has been used in Templin and Hoffman (2013), and Templin and Bradshaw (2014).
