exceptionalScores

exceptionalScores

A function to detect participants that consistently respond exceptionally.

Usage
exceptionalScores(dat, items = NULL, exception = 0.025, totalOnly = TRUE,
                  append = TRUE, both = TRUE, silent = FALSE,
                  suffix = "_isExceptional", totalVarName = "exceptionalScores")
Arguments
dat

The dataframe containing the variables to inspect, or the vector to inspect (but for vectors, exceptionalScore might be more useful).

items

The names of the variables to inspect.

exception

When an item will be considered exceptional, passed on as prob to exceptionalScore.

totalOnly

Whether to return only the number of exceptional scores for each row in the dataframe, or for each inspected item, which values are exceptional.

append

Whether to return the supplied dataframe with the new variable(s) appended (if TRUE), or whether to only return the new variable(s) (if FALSE).

both

Whether to look for both low and high exceptional scores (TRUE) or not (FALSE; see exceptionalScore).

silent

Can be used to suppress messages.

suffix

If not returning the total number of exceptional values, for each inspected variable, a new variable is returned indicating which values are exceptional. The text string is appended to each original variable name to create the new variable names.

totalVarName

If returning only the total number of exceptional values, and appending these to the provided dataset, this text string is used as variable name.

Value

Either a vector containing the number of exceptional values, a dataset containing, for each inspected variable, which values are exceptional, or the provided dataset where either the total or the exceptional values for each variable are appended.
