Abstract

The previous chapter focused on the description of the R package catR as a tool for simulation studies on CAT processes. This chapter presents several practical illustrations of catR using two real item banks, one for dichotomously scored items and one for polytomously scored items. After a brief description of both item banks, several examples are displayed with the same organization.
