as.poly.mod: poly.mod objects

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/classes.R

Description

This function attempts to turn the given values into a poly.mod object that associates each item with a specific unidimensional or multidimensional item response model.

Usage

1
as.poly.mod(n, model = "drm", items = NULL)

Arguments

n

total number of items

model

character vector identifying the IRT models used to estimate the item parameters. The only acceptable models are drm, gpcm, grm, mcm, and nrm. See below for an explanation of the codes.

items

list identifying the item numbers from a set of parameters that correspond to the given model in model.

Details

When creating a poly.mod object, there is no difference in the specification for unidimensional versus multidimensional item response models. If all the items are dichotomous, it is only necessary to specify a value for n. If all the items correspond to a single model (other than drm), only n and model need to be specified.

The IRT models associated with the codes:

drm:

dichotomous response models (includes the 1PL, 2PL, 3PL, M1PL, M2PL, and M3PL)

gpcm:

partial credit model, generalized partial credit model, multidimensional partial credit model, and multidimensional generalized partial credit model

grm:

graded response model and multidimensional graded response model

mcm:

multiple-choice model and multidimensional multiple-choice model

nrm:

nominal response model and multidimensional nominal response model

Value

Returns an object of class poly.mod

# Ten dichotomous items

# The first ten items in the set of associated (not present here) item

as.poly.mod(15, c("drm", "gpcm"), list(1:10,11:15) )

# Ten multidimensional graded response model items
# Note: This same specification would be used for a unidimensional
# graded response model
as.poly.mod(10, "grm")
