iwquickcons {ConsRank} | R Documentation |
The item-weighted Quick algorithm finds up to 4 solutions. Solutions reached are most of the time optimal solutions.
iwquickcons(X, w, Wk = NULL, full = FALSE, PS = FALSE)
X |
A N by M data matrix in which there are N judges and M objects to be judged. Each row is a ranking of the objects which are represented by the columns. Alternatively X can contain the rankings observed only once in the sample. In this case the argument Wk must be used |
w |
A M-dimensional row vector (individually weighted items), or a M by M matrix (item similarities) |
Wk |
Optional: the frequency of each ranking in the data |
full |
Default full=FALSE. If full=TRUE, the searching is limited to the space of full rankings. |
PS |
Default PS=FALSE. If PS=TRUE the number of evaluated branches is diplayed |
The item-weigthed Quick algorithm finds up the consensus (median) ranking according to the Kemeny's axiomatic approach. The median ranking(s) can be restricted to be necessarily a full ranking, namely without ties.
a "list" containing the following components:
Consensus | the Consensus Ranking | |
Tau | averaged item-weighted TauX rank correlation coefficient | |
Eltime | Elapsed time in seconds |
