infoR Documentation

Calculates the information of an "Item" object

Description

This function sets a generic method for calculating the information of a suitable object

Usage

info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'Item'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'Rasch'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature ''1PL''
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature ''2PL''
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature ''3PL''
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature ''4PL''
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'PCM'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'GRM'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'GPCM'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'GPCM2'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'Itempool'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'Testlet'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'numMatDfListChar'
info(ip, theta, tif = FALSE, observed = FALSE, resp = NULL)

Arguments

ip

An Item-class, Itempool-class or Testlet-class object.

theta

An vector of ability parameters.

tif

If it is TRUE, function will return total information obtained from each item for a given theta. It simply adds information of individual items.

observed

If TRUE, observed information calculated instead of the default expected information.

resp

A response string (vector or a matrix). Necessary for observed information.

Value

A vector (or matrix) consist of item or test information.
