Description Usage Format References Examples

Description

The data set is simulated from a Partial Credit Model where some items exhibit differential item functioning. Existing differences in item difficulties are simulated by step-functions. The true, simulated DIF structure is described in Bollmann et al. (2017), Section 4.3.
