Dataset for Polytomous GDINA Model

Description

Dataset for the estimation of the polytomous GDINA model.

Usage

data(data.pgdina)

Format

The dataset is a list with the item response data and the Q-matrix. The format is:

List of 2
$ dat : num [1:1000, 1:30] 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 ...
..- attr(*, "dimnames")=List of 2
.. ..$ : NULL
.. ..$ : chr [1:30] "I1" "I2" "I3" "I4" ...
$ q.matrix: num [1:30, 1:5] 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 2 ...

Details

The dataset was simulated by the following R code:

set.seed(89)
# define Q-matrix
