predict: Expected Values and Predicted Probabilities from Item...

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

Description

This function computes expected values for each person and each item based on the individual posterior distribution. The output of this function can be the basis of creating item and person fit statistics.

IRT.predict(object, dat, group=1)

## S3 method for class 'din'
predict(object, group=1, ...)

## S3 method for class 'gdina'
predict(object, group=1, ...)

## S3 method for class 'mcdina'
predict(object, group=1, ...)

## S3 method for class 'gdm'
predict(object, group=1, ...)

## S3 method for class 'slca'
predict(object, group=1, ...)

Arguments

object

Object for the S3 methods IRT.irfprob and IRT.posterior are defined. In the CDM packages, these are the objects of class din, gdina, mcdina, slca or gdm.

dat

Dataset with item responses

group

Group index for use

...

Further arguments to be passed.

Value
