Artificial Data: DINA and DINO

Description

Artificial data: dichotomously coded fictitious answers of 400 respondents to 9 items assuming 3 underlying attributes.

Usage

  data(sim.dina)
  data(sim.dino)
  data(sim.qmatrix)

Format

The sim.dina and sim.dino data sets include dichotomous answers of N=400 respondents to J=9 items, thus they are 400 \times 9 data matrices. For both data sets K=3 attributes are assumed to underlie the process of responding, stored in sim.qmatrix.

The sim.dina data set is simulated according to the DINA condensation rule, whereas the sim.dino data set is simulated according to the DINO condensation rule. The slipping errors for the items 1 to 9 in both data sets are 0.20, 0.20, 0.20, 0.20, 0.00, 0.50, 0.50, 0.10, 0.03 and the guessing errors are 0.10, 0.125, 0.15, 0.175, 0.2, 0.225, 0.25, 0.275, 0.3. The attributes are assumed to be mastered with expected probabilities of -0.4, 0.2, 0.6, respectively. The correlation of the attributes is 0.3 for attributes 1 and 2, 0.4 for attributes 1 and 3 and 0.1 for attributes 2 and 3.
