## Obtain A List of Cut-offs for Scale Usage Problems

### Description

`cgetC`

obtains a list of censoring points, or cut-offs, used in the ordinal multivariate probit model of Rossi et al (2001). This approach uses a quadratic parameterization of the cut-offs. The model is useful for modeling correlated ordinal data on a scale from `1`

to `k`

with different scale usage patterns.

### Usage

`cgetC(e, k)`

### Arguments

`e` |
quadratic parameter ( |

`k` |
items are on a scale from |

### Value

A vector of `k+1`

cut-offs.

### Warning

This is a utility function which implements **no** error-checking.
