Above is the code,When I run summary(PL2.rasch) I will get the following table directly:
                 value           std.err   z.vals
Dffclt.V1    3.1135       9.8208  0.3170
Dffclt.V2   -0.5157       0.8941 -0.5768
Discrm.V1   -1.3585       3.2062 -0.4237
Discrm.V1   -1.0032    8649.3103 -0.0001

Working on Item response theory and I�m struggling at calculating above values manually.
You will get this difficulty and discrimination values directly, I just want the simple formulas to calculate item difficulty and item discrimination.
Also how they have calculated theta(ability) and scores at the backend of the code.

You did not say what your doubt about R was.
PL2.rasch has some class.
> class(PL2.rasch)
[1] 'Grofnigtz'   # or whatever
The summary function is really just a dispatcher.
> summary.Grofnigtz
... a listing comes out here ...

Or you could look in the source code of whatever package you are usin.

Hello Team,
I hope you are doing well.
I have one doubt about backend functioning of R command.
Currently I'm working on IRT analysis in python but this function is implemented in R and in R they have direct rasch model library but no such library in the Python.

So I wanted to know that is there any way to find the math or formula behind the specific command of R language.
for eg, summary(PL2.rasch)
after this command you will directly get difficulty and discrimination values like mentioned below:

                 value           std.err   z.vals
Dffclt.V1    3.1135       9.8208  0.3170
Dffclt.V2   -0.5157       0.8941 -0.5768
Dffclt.V3   -1.3585       3.2062 -0.4237
Dffclt.V4   -1.0032    8649.3103 -0.0001
Dffclt.V5    0.0400    1350.8452  0.0000

So is there any way to find out the math behind this summary command ?
