An updated version of the Miscellaneous Psychometrics package has been updated to CRAN. The following updates are included in the package:

  1. An implementation of the Stocking-Lord procedure for linking test scales.
  2. An implementation of the Levenshtein algorithm for comparing character strings
  3. stringProbs, a function for computing the probability of a given Levenshtein Distance
  4. Three sources of documentation on all functions. There is complete technical documentation on the functions used in MiscPsycho in the file MP.pdf, the stocking-lord implementation is documented in stock_lord.pdf, and a paper describing the Levenshtein algorithm and its application in educational measurement is provided in levenshtein.pdf. All of these are in the docs folder in the package distribution.

Any comments, reactions, critiques, are welcome.

Harold
