jrt

The goal of jrt is to provide tools to use Item-Response Theory (IRT) models on judgment data, especially in the context of the Consensual Assessment Technique, as presented in Myszkowski (2021).

Installation

You can install the released version of jrt from CRAN with:

install.packages("jrt")

Example use
