Provides stochastic EM algorithms for latent variable models with a high-dimensional latent space. So far, we provide functions for confirmatory item factor analysis based on the multidimensional two parameter logistic (M2PL) model and the generalized multidimensional partial credit model. These functions scale well for problems with many latent traits (e.g., thirty or even more) and are virtually tuning-free. The computation is facilitated by multiprocessing 'OpenMP' API.
