File name


A list with three elements, est, se, vcm for the parameter estimates, their standard errors, and the variance-covariance matrix per item. The first two are matrices with one row per item, and three columns: [,1] item discrimination a, [,2] item difficulty b, and [,3] asymptote c. For the 1PL and 2PL models, all asymptotes are equal to 0; for the 1PL, the discriminations are all equal but not necessarily equal to 1.
