sirt: Supplementary Item Response Theory Models

Supplementary functions for item response models aiming to complement existing R packages. The functionality includes among others multidimensional compensatory and noncompensatory IRT models (Reckase, 2009, <doi:10.1007/978-0-387-89976-3>), MCMC for hierarchical IRT models and testlet models (Fox, 2010, <doi:10.1007/978-1-4419-0742-4>), NOHARM (Fraser & McDonald, 1982, <doi:10.1207/s15327906mbr2302_9>), Rasch copula model (Braeken, 2011, <doi:10.1007/s11336-010-9190-4>; Schroeders, Robitzsch & Schipolowski, 2014, <doi:10.1111/jedm.12054>), faceted and hierarchical rater models (DeCarlo, Kim & Johnson, 2011, <doi:10.1111/j.1745-3984.2011.00143.x>), ordinal IRT model (ISOP; Scheiblechner, 1995, <doi:10.1007/BF02301417>), DETECT statistic (Stout et al., 1996, <doi:10.1177/014662169602000403>), local structural equation modeling (LSEM; Hildebrandt et al., 2016, <doi:10.1080/00273171.2016.1142856>).
