SIMIRT: Stata module to process data generated by IRT models


  • Jean-Benoit Hardouin

    () (University of Nantes, France)


simirt allows creating a new dataset of responses to items simulated by an unidimensional IRT model. The model can be dichotomous (Rasch, OPLM, Birnbaum, 3PLM, 4PLM, 5PAM) or polytomous (Rating Scale Model-RSM). It is possible to simulate two sets of items linked, for each of them, to a specific latent trait (which can be correlated). The Items Characteristic Curves can be drawn.
