boot.mirt: Calculate bootstrapped standard errors for estimated models

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/boot.mirt.R

Description

Given an internal mirt object estimate the bootstrapped standard errors. It may be beneficial to run the computations using multi-core architecture (e.g., the parallel package). Parameters are organized from the freely estimated values in mod2values(x) (equality constraints will also be returned in the bootstrapped estimates).

Usage

1
boot.mirt(x, R = 100, technical = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

an estimated model object

R

number of draws to use (passed to the boot() function)

technical

technical arguments passed to estimation engine. See mirt for details

...

additional arguments to be passed on to boot(...) and estimation engine
