Item Response Models for Multiple Ratings

Implements some item response models for multiple ratings, including the hierarchical rater model, conditional maximum likelihood estimation of linear logistic partial credit model and a wrapper function to the commercial FACETS program. See Robitzsch and Steinfeld (2018) for a description of the functionality of the package. See Wang, Su & Qiu (2014; ) for an overview of modeling alternatives.
