ix.mat2df: Transform data.frame back to Raw Difference Scale Format

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

ix.mat2df converts a long data.frame that is used as the data argument for mlds with method = “glm” to the 5 column format, typically from the results of a difference scaling experiment. The first column is the response and the next four are the ranks of the stimulus levels used in each trial, the 2 pairs. ix.mat2df is the inverse of make.ix.mat. This form of data.frame is used with the “optim” method of mlds.

Arguments

d

a data.frame with p columns and n rows, where p is the number of stimulus levels and n is the number of trials. The first column is the resp, 0 or 1, and the next p - 1 columns correspond to the incidences of the stimulus levels on each trial, 3 or 4 per row, with the signs + - - +. The column corresponding to the lowest level stimulus is deleted, as its coefficient is contrained to equal 0 in the current parameterization of the problem. Thus, 3 non-zero terms would be of the form - - +, indicating the presence of the lowest level stimulus in the trial.

Value

A 5 column data.frame which could be coerced to interger.

resp

The response, 0 or 1, indicating which pair was chosen

S1-S4

The rank of the 4 stimulus levels presented on each trial.

# better to use as.mlds.df as ix.mat2df is deprecated
orig.df <- as.mlds.df(ix.mat)
