Tools, tutorials, and demos of Item Factor Analysis using 'OpenMx'.
Provides convenience functions and pre-programmed Stan models related to the pairwise comparison factor model. Its purpose is to make fitting pairwise comparison data using Stan easy.
The purpose of this package is to factor out logic and math common to Item Factor Analysis fitting, diagnostics, and analysis. It is envisioned as core support code suitable for more specialized IRT packages to build upon. Complete access to optimized C functions are made available with R_RegisterCCallable().
Analysis of dichotomous and polytomous response data using unidimensional and multidimensional latent trait models under the Item Response Theory paradigm (Chalmers (2012) <doi:10.18637/jss.v048.i06>). Exploratory and confirmatory models can be estimated with quadrature (EM) or stochastic (MHRM) methods. Confirmatory bi-factor and two-tier analyses are available for modeling item testlets. Multiple group analysis and mixed effects designs also are available for detecting differential item and test functioning as well as modeling item and person covariates. Finally, latent class models such as the DINA, DINO, multidimensional latent class, and several other discrete latent variable models, including mixture and zero-inflated response models, are supported.
The C++ header files of the Stan project are provided by this package, but it contains no R code or function documentation. There is a shared object containing part of the 'CVODES' library, but it is not accessible from R. 'StanHeaders' is only useful for developers who want to utilize the 'LinkingTo' directive of their package's DESCRIPTION file to build on the Stan library without incurring unnecessary dependencies. The Stan project develops a probabilistic programming language that implements full or approximate Bayesian statistical inference via Markov Chain Monte Carlo or 'variational' methods and implements (optionally penalized) maximum likelihood estimation via optimization. The Stan library includes an advanced automatic differentiation scheme, 'templated' statistical and linear algebra functions that can handle the automatically 'differentiable' scalar types (and doubles, 'ints', etc.), and a parser for the Stan language. The 'rstan' package provides user-facing R functions to parse, compile, test, estimate, and analyze Stan models.
