Description

This package includes the tools to estimate model parameters for the Samejima's Continuous Response Model (CRM) via marginal maximum likelihood estimation and EM algorithm, to compute item fit residual statistics, to draw empirical 3D item category response curves, to draw theoretical 3D item category response curves, and to generate data under the CRM for simulation studies.
