anyone out there with experience/advice/thoughts on how to transition from SPSS to R in clinical psych BSc programme? would you radically change all stats courses to R only, offer it as optional, start parallel and let students choose after few weeks?

Testing is a critical weapon in fighting back #COVID19, and at-home rapid tests are available at testing sites across the five boroughs. But how do they work? We'll walk you through it. ➡️ testandtrace.nyc

I’m teaching Intro Psych for the first time. What are some replicable studies that are fascinating to talk about on opening day?

"'The right thing to do' is not pay $11,000." The #RStats #blogdown package makes it easy to build your own website for free. You can post your articles and various other academic materials right there on your free website. While we're at it, the @OSFramework is also free.
Lmao let’s “shine a spotlight” on how absurd it is to pay $11,000 to publish your article open access in @Nature journals when you can just post it yourself all over the internet.

I’m now regularly making my own tortillas and hot sauces. How about you?

This semester, my students and I get to continue our exploration of the GLMM, this time embedded within the context of experimental design. Here’s an example of the negative-binomial model applied to idiographic BAB data (doi.org/10.1177/154079697900…).

Use #marginaleffects to include 95% CIs around your #lme4-based fitted lines.
Replying to @VincentAB
Check out the two new case study vignettes! Bayesian Analysis with {brms} (inspired by @andrewheiss) and Mixed Effects models with {lme4} (inspired by @SolomonKurz). Image below shows a {brms} example. vincentarelbundock.github.io… vincentarelbundock.github.io…

What are your favorite book chapters/blog posts/articles that teach how to analyze within-person reaction-time data (e.g., Stroop, IAT,…)? Bonus internet points for #OpenScience and/or #RStats sources.

About the same here in the great state of TX.

I’m not a veteran, but I have been very happy with the vaccination services the VA has provided me as an employee.
Veterans, start the new year with a boost of health & safety. Get your COVID-19 booster.
Agreed. Missing data are endemic to many research areas, and it cannot be treated as an advanced topic. I introduced missing data theory in the middle of my fall semester course. To be honest, I botched it. But if I teach the course next year, I will buck up and try again.

Quanty #RStats Bayesian folks: Who has thoughts on HDI estimation methods? Asking for a friend.

In case you missed it:
What's your favorite blog/article introducing the replication crisis and (perhaps) the #OpenScience revolution that followed? I'll start. I've always liked "What has happened down here is the winds have changed" by Gelman (statmodeling.stat.columbia.e…).

New blog up! solomonkurz.netlify.app/post… Some of my recent projects required the Bayesian cumulative probit model. To bet a better handle on the cumulative probit, I worked through some toy problems. This blog contains my notes. If you see errors, do chime in. #brms

Ignorant ECR question to all y’all senior folks: Who decides on the hiring/promotion criteria in your department? Committee members? Some faceless dean? The illuminati? Cause it seems like this is the real answer to the question in the quote.
Ok, so honest question. Why do we let this continue? Is publishing in the top Elsevier journal that important to us that we can’t all agree to start our own system?

No replies necessary. The opening example is the best. Only boomers are interested in journal impact factors.
Tell me you're a bad scientist without telling me you're a bad scientist. I'll start; I can judge the quality of data by looking at what journal a paper is published in, no reading necessary.

New blog up! solomonkurz.netlify.app/post… I recently learned how to compute 95% CIs for #lme4 models with #emmeans. Since is turns out a lot of y’all didn’t know how to do this (see nitter.net/SolomonKurz/stat…), here’s a tutorial showing you how.
Now that I can get 95% intervals around my population-level fitted lines, I'm really coming around to using #emmeans with #lme4 models. Here's a toy example with the ChickWeight data.
