This article proposes the Shiny app 'CLC Estimator' -Congeneric Latent Construct Estimator- to address the problem of estimating latent unidimensional constructs via congeneric approaches. While congeneric approaches provide more rigorous results than suboptimal parallel-based scoring methods, most statistical packages do not provide easy access to congeneric approaches. To address this issue, the CLC Estimator allows social scientists to use congeneric approaches to estimate latent unidimensional constructs smoothly. The present app provides a novel solution to the challenge of limited access to congeneric estimation methods in survey research.

Abstract

This article proposes the Shiny app 'CLC Estimator' -Congeneric Latent Construct Estimator- to address the problem of estimating latent unidimensional constructs via congeneric approaches. While congeneric approaches provide more rigorous results than suboptimal parallel-based scoring methods, most statistical packages do not provide easy access to congeneric approaches. To address this issue, the CLC Estimator allows social scientists to use congeneric approaches to estimate latent unidimensional constructs smoothly. The present app provides a novel solution to the challenge of limited access to congeneric estimation methods in survey research.
