Below is an illustration showing some analyses that you could do using the package. You can copy the code, paste and run it in R console. For a more comprehensive example, see this tutorial.
library(GDINA) <- sim10GDINA$simdat dat <- matrix(c(1,0,0, Q 0,1,0, 0,0,1, 1,0,1, 0,1,1, 1,1,0, 0,0,1, 1,0,0, 1,1,1, 1,0,1),byrow = T,ncol = 3)
<- GDINA(dat = dat, Q = Q, model = "GDINA")est
<- Qval(est) Qv Qv
To avoid using fixed cutoffs and also take uncertainty in item parameter estimation into account, you may consider the stepwise method:
<- Qval(est,method = "Wald") Qv2 Qv2
To further examine the q-vectors that are suggested to be modified, you can draw mesa plots:
plot(Qv, item = 9)
<- modelcomp(est) mc mc
# test level absolute fit <- modelfit(est) mft mft# item level absolute fit <- itemfit(est) ift iftsummary(ift) plot(ift)
