psychotools: Infrastructure for Psychometric Modeling

Infrastructure for psychometric modeling such as data classes (for item response data and paired comparisons), basic model fitting functions (for Bradley-Terry, Rasch, partial credit, and rating scale models), extractor functions for different types of parameters (item, person, threshold, discrimination), unified inference and visualizations, and various datasets for illustration. Intended as a common lightweight and efficient toolbox for psychometric modeling and a common building block for fitting psychometric mixture models in package "psychomix" and psychometric tree models in package "psychotree".
