range

a numeric interval for which the test information should be computed.

items

the items for which the information should be computed; the default NULL corresponds to all the items, which is equivalent to the test information.

...

extra arguments passed to integrate().

Details

The amount of information is computed as the area under the Item or Test Information Curve in the specified interval, using integrate().

Value

A list of class information with components,

InfoRange
