draw.tetra {psych} | R Documentation |
A graphic of a correlation ellipse divided into 4 regions based upon x and y cutpoints on two normal distributions. This is also an example of using the layout function. Draw a bivariate density plot to show how tetrachorics work.
draw.tetra(r, t1, t2,shade=TRUE)
draw.cor(r=.5,expand=10,theta=30,phi=30,N=101,nbcol=30,box=TRUE,
main="Bivariate density rho = ",cuts=NULL,all=TRUE,ellipses=TRUE,ze=.15)
r |
the underlying Pearson correlation defines the shape of the ellipse |
t1 |
X is cut at tau |
t2 |
Y is cut at Tau |
shade |
shade the diagram (default is TRUE) |
expand |
The relative height of the z axis |
theta |
The angle to rotate the x-y plane |
phi |
The angle above the plane to view the graph |
N |
The grid resolution |
nbcol |
The color resolution |
box |
Draw the axes |
main |
The main title |
cuts |
Should the graphic show cuts (e.g., cuts=c(0,0)) |
all |
Show all four parts of the tetrachoric |
ellipses |
Draw a correlation ellipse |
ze |
height of the ellipse if requested |
A graphic demonstration of the tetrachoric
correlation. Used for teaching purposes. The default values are for a correlation of .5 with cuts at 1 and 1. Any other values are possible. The code is also a demonstration of how to use the layout
function for complex graphics using base graphics.
