## S3 method for class 'DIFtree'
plot(x, item, component = "intercept", cex.lines = 2,
  cex.branches = 1, cex.coefs = 1, cex.main = 1, title = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

Object of class DIFtree

item

Number of the item, for which the tree shall be plotted

component

Component of the model for which the tree shall be plotted; can be "intercept" or "slope". For "Rasch" and "PCM" only one tree of item parameters is available for each DIF item and therefore component will be ignored.

cex.lines

Width of branches of the tree

cex.branches

Size of the labels of branches of the tree

cex.coefs

Size of coefficients in the terminal nodes of the tree

cex.main

Size of the title of the tree

title

Optional title, which is added to the tree; if title=NULL the title is the number of the plotted item.

...
