IC {eRm}R Documentation

Information criteria

Description

Computation of information criteria such as AIC, BIC, and cAIC based on unconditional (joint), marginal, and conditional log-likelihood

Usage

## S3 method for class 'ppar'
IC(object)

Arguments

object

Object of class ppar (from person.parameter().

Details

The joint log-likelihood is established by summation of the logarithms of the estimated solving probabilities. The marginal log-likelihood can be computed directly from the conditional log-likelihood (see vignette for details).

Value

The function IC returns an object of class ICr containing:

ICtable

Matrix containing log-likelihood values, number of parameters, AIC, BIC, and cAIC for the joint, marginal, and conditional log-likelihood.
