cIRT v1.3.1 Released: More Modernization and Maintenance Release

The cIRT package (CRAN, GitHub) is home to the implementation of Choice Item Response Theory (cIRT) described by Culpepper and Balamuta (2015). cIRT jointly models the accuracy of cognitive responses and item choices within a bayesian hierarchical framework.

After over a year, we’re back for another maintenance release! I suppose this goes to show that science requires maintenance. In particular, this release addressed a CRAN issue with respect to how data is stored in the package. We’ve further incorporated in a pkgdown website alongside of using GitHub actions to handle continuous testing.

For more information, please see the full NEWS release below.
