Description

The conditional likelihood ratio tests compare item parameters in low and high score groups for an overall test of homogeneity, and in groups defined by the levels of exogenous factors for tests of no differential item functioning (DIF).

Usage

1
clr_tests(dat.items, dat.exo, model = c("RM", "PCM"))

Arguments

dat.items

data frame with the responses to the items.

dat.exo

data frame consisting of exogenuous factor variables.
