entropy.lca {CDM}R Documentation

Test-specific and Item-specific Entropy for Latent Class Models

Description

Computes test-specific and item-specific entropy as test-diagnostic criteria of cognitive diagnostic models (Asparouhov & Muthen, 2014).

Usage

entropy.lca(object)

## S3 method for class 'entropy.lca'
summary(object, digits=2,  ...)

Arguments

object

Object of class din, gdina or mcdina. For the summary method, it is the result of entropy.lca.

digits

Number of digits to round

...

Further arguments to be passed

Value

A list with the data frame entropy as an entry.
