Dataset SDA6 (Jurich & Bradshaw, 2014)

Description

This is a simulated dataset of the SDA6 study according to informations given in Jurich and Bradshaw (2014).

Usage

data(data.sda6)

Format

The datasets contains 17 items observed at 1710 students.

The format is:

List of 2
$ data : num [1:1710, 1:17] 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 ...
..- attr(*, "dimnames")=List of 2
.. ..$ : NULL
.. ..$ : chr [1:17] "MCM01" "MCM03" "MCM13" "MCM17" ...
$ q.matrix:'data.frame':
..$ CM: int [1:17] 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 ...
..$ II: int [1:17] 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 ...
..$ PP: int [1:17] 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 ...
..$ DG: int [1:17] 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 ...

The meaning of the skills is

CM – Critique Methods

II – Identify Improvements

PP – Protect Participants

DG – Discern Generalizability
