item_difficulty(x)

`x` |
Depending on the function, |

This function calculates the item difficulty, which should
range between 0.2 and 0.8. Lower values are a signal for
more difficult items, while higher values close to one
are a sign for easier items. The ideal value for item difficulty
is `p + (1 - p) / 2`

, where `p = 1 / max(x)`

. In most
cases, the ideal item difficulty lies between 0.5 and 0.8.

A data frame with three columns: The name(s) of the item(s), the item difficulties for each item, and the ideal item difficulty.

data(mtcars) x <- mtcars[, c("cyl", "gear", "carb", "hp")] item_difficulty(x)
