Description

Plot an empirical response function using rest scores.

Usage

1
 restScore(data, item, NCuts)

Arguments

data

N(subjects)-by-p(items) matrix of 0/1 item response data.

item

Generate a rest score plot for item item.

NCuts

Divide the rest scores into NCuts bins of equal width.

Value

A restscore plot with 95% confidence interval bars for the conditional probability estimates.

item

The item number.

bins

A vector of bin limits and bin sample sizes.

binProb

A vector of bin conditional probabilities.
