Bayesian Inference with JASP

by the Psychological Methods Group of Prof. Eric-Jan Wagenmakers, University of Amsterdam

Remote workshop:
This workshop will be held via Zoom. If you enroll for the workshop (see below),
you will receive a Zoom-Link to participate. This information will be sent-out
mid-March 2021.

Abstract:
The main purpose of this workshop is to familiarize
participants with key Bayesian concepts. The emphasis is on Bayesian
hypothesis testing. Concrete examples illustrate how to compute,
report, and interpret Bayesian hypothesis tests for popular
statistical models such as correlation, regression, t-test, ANOVA, and
contingency tables. To facilitate the learning process we use JASP, a
program whose attractive graphical user interface allows us to focus
quickly on core Bayesian concepts and principles.

At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to carry out
statistical analyses in JASP, interpret the output, and report the
results. No background in Bayesian statistics is required.
Participants should have access to a computer with the latest version
of JASP installed (jasp-stats.org). Plenary sessions will be given by
Eric-Jan Wagenmakers.
