dmacs {dmacs}R Documentation

dmacs: A package for computing measurement nonequivalence effects.


The dmacs package provides functions used to compute indices related to the effects of measurement nonequivalence on observed scores, as described in Nye and Drasgow (2011).

dmacs functions

The dmacs package includes helper functions that can compute the various indices from Nye and Drasgow (2011) for fitted lavaan objects (lavaan_dmacs) and Mplus output files (mplus_dmacs). For users of other software and those interested, specific functions for computing these indices for individual items in individual focal groups are also available.
