Bayesthresh: Bayesian thresholds mixed-effects models for categorical data

This package fits a linear mixed model for ordinal categorical responses using Bayesian inference via Monte Carlo Markov Chains. Default is Nandran & Chen algorithm using Gaussian link function and saving just the summaries of the chains. Among the options, package allow for two other options of algorithms, for using Student's "t" link function and for saving the full chains.
