This function calls `optim`

to estimate the one-parameter RSC model from the (conjunctively-scored) repsonses of dyads to a group assessment.

the latent trait of member 2. |

`sigma` |

Estimation is via either maximum likelihood (ML) or modal a'posteriori (MAP), with the latter being prefered. For MAP, a two-parameter Beta prior is used with the parameter of the RSC model, in which both parameters are equal to `1 + epsilon`

. Standard errors (or posterior standard deviations) are computed via the inverse of the analytically computed second derivatives of the objective function, at the parameter estimates. The value of the objective function at the estimate is is also provided. If `parallel = T`

, the call to `optim`

is parallelized via `parallel::mclapply`

.

An named `nrow(resp)`

by 3 data.frame containing the estimates, their standard errors, and the value of the log-likelihood of the RSC model at the solution (not the log posterior with MAP).
