  • bug fixed

GDINA 2.0 2018-03-23

  • This is a major update including a large number of new features. The GDINA function has been largely rewritten for both flexibility and speed. Users are now allowed to fit MS-DINA model, Bugs models, and define models by providing design matrix and link functions. For joint attribute distribution, in addition to saturated and higher-order models, users are now allowed to fit independent model and loglinear model. Code for joint attribute distribution modelling has been restructured as well. Other major updates include model fit evaluation using M2 statistics and other limited information measures, item-level model selection using likelihood ratio test and score test, classification accuracy evaluation indices, bootstrap standard error estimation, etc.
  • Note that due to the major updates, some results from this version may be slightly different from those using the previous versions.
