OrdinalGEE.score(params, scale=None)

score, first derivative of the loglikelihood function

Parameters
paramsndarray

Parameter at which score is evaluated.

scaleNone or float

If scale is None, then the default scale will be calculated. Default scale is defined by self.scaletype and set in fit. If scale is not None, then it is used as a fixed scale.

Returns
scorendarray_1d

The first derivative of the loglikelihood function calculated as the sum of score_obs
