Item parameter replication

Share:

Description

Generates a sample of item parameters assuming multivariate normality of estimates

Usage

1
Ipr(itemParameters, itemCovariances, nReplicates = 5000)

Arguments

itemParameters

A list containing "focal" and "reference" item parameters. Item parameters are assumed to be on the same scale. Item parameters for each group should me a matrix with nrow equal to the number of items.

itemCovariances

A list containing "focal" and "reference" lists of matrices of covariance for item estimates.

nReplicates

A numeric value indicating the number of replications to perform

Value

itemParameters A list with item parameters for focal and reference groups
