S3 Methods for Extracting Item Response Functions

Description

This S3 method extracts item response functions evaluated at a grid of abilities (skills). Item response functions can be plotted using the IRT.irfprobPlot function.

Usage

IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'din'
IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'gdina'
IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'gdm'
IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'mcdina'
IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'reglca'
IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'slca'
IRT.irfprob(object, ...)

Arguments

object

Object of classes din, gdina, mcdina, gdm, slca, reglca.

...

More arguments to be passed.

Value

An array with item response probabilities (items \times categories \times skill classes [\times group]) and attributes

theta

Uni- or multidimensional skill space (theta grid in item response models).

prob.theta

Probability distribution of theta

skillspace

Design matrix and estimated parameters for skill space distribution (only for IRT.posterior.slca)

G

Number of groups
