`resp` |
A data frame containing the response matrix. Rows correspond to respondents, columns to items. |

`DIF_covariate` |
A vector indicating the membership to the reference (0) and focal (1) groups. |

`theta` |
A vector of ability estimates for each respondent. |

`see` |
A vector of the standard error of the ability estimates for each respondent. |

`cellmin` |
Minimum number of respondents per cell for the focal and reference group. Cells with fewer respondents are discarded. |

`pctmin` |
Minimum rate of focal and reference group that should be used for estimating the over ability difference between focal and groups after discarding cells with few respondents. |

`NCell` |
The initial number of cells for estimating the overall ability difference between the focal and reference groups. |

A list with four elements. The first element is the response matrix, the second element is the name of the DIF covariate, and the third element is the name of the test. The fourth element is a matrix where each row corresponds to an item. The columns correspond to the following entries:

- Beta
The estimated weighted ability difference between the focal and reference groups.

- Vars
The estimation error of the weighted ability difference between the focal and reference groups.

- N_R
The number of respondents in the reference group.

- N_F
The number of respondents in the focal group.

- NCell
The initial number of cells for estimating the overall ability difference between the focal and reference groups.

- p_value
The p-value of the null hypothesis that the ability difference between the focal and reference groups is 0.
