Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/equating.rasch.jackknife.R

Description

This function estimates the linking error in linking based on Jackknife (Monseur & Berezner, 2007).

Usage

1
2
equating.rasch.jackknife(pars.data, display=TRUE,
   se.linkerror=FALSE, alpha1=0, alpha2=0)

Arguments

pars.data

Data frame with four columns: jackknife unit (1st column), item parameter study 1 (2nd column), item parameter study 2 (3rd column), item (4th column)

display

Display progress?

se.linkerror

Compute standard error of the linking error

alpha1

Fixed α_1 parameter in the generalized item response model

alpha2

Fixed α_2 parameter in the generalized item response model

Value

A list with following entries:

pars.data

Used item parameters

itemunits

Used units for jackknife

descriptives

Descriptives for Jackknife. linkingerror.jackknife is the estimated linking error.
