Animating Robustness-Check of Bayes Factor Priors

Today I submitted a paper which contained some Bayesian analysis using Bayes factors (a default Bayesian t-test). As the test used a default prior on the effect size (a Cauchy distribution centred on zero with rate [r] = 0.707), I wanted to appease any reviewer concern that the final Bayes factor reported was some peculiarity … Continue reading Animating Robustness-Check of Bayes Factor Priors


Recruitment Order & Sequential Bayes Factors

One advantage of using Bayes factors (or any other form of Bayesian analysis) is the ability to engage in optional stopping. That is, one can collect some data, perform the critical Bayesian test, and stop data collection once a pre-defined criterion has been obtained (e.g., until "strong" evidence has been found in support of one … Continue reading Recruitment Order & Sequential Bayes Factors
