plotCutoffNested: Plot sampling distributions of the differences in fit indices...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/plotCutoffNested.R

Description

This function will plot sampling distributions of the differences in fit indices between nested models if the nested model is true. The users may add cutoffs by specifying the alpha level.

Usage

1
2
plotCutoffNested(nested, parent, alpha = 0.05, cutoff = NULL, 
usedFit = NULL, useContour = T)

Arguments

nested

SimResult that saves the analysis results of nested model from multiple replications

parent

SimResult that saves the analysis results of parent model from multiple replications

alpha

A priori alpha level

cutoff

A priori cutoffs for fit indices, saved in a vector

usedFit

Vector of names of fit indices that researchers wish to plot the sampling distribution.

useContour

If there are two of sample size, percent completely at random, and percent missing at random are varying, the plotCutoff function will provide 3D graph. Contour graph is a default. However, if this is specified as FALSE, perspective plot is used.

Value

NONE. Only plot the fit indices distributions.
