Bayesian Hypothesis Testing
Mon, 24 April 2017, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Brief: Bayesian statistics have been around since the 18th century, but Bayesian approaches to scientific hypothesis testing only became feasible in the last few decades. This presentation will give a practical introduction to Bayesian Hypothesis Testing, including two data analysis examples using the open-source Bayesian statistics program, JASP. You will leave the workshop with an understanding of the theoretical differences between Bayesian and classical statistics and the ability to immediately incorporate basic Bayesian analyses in your research.
Presenter: Dr. Elizabeth Page-Gould is the Canada Research Chair of Social Psychophysiology and an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto. Her research examines social interactions between friends and strangers. Elizabeth takes a multimethod approach to research, frequently combining behavioural, self-report, and physiological measures to capture a rich picture of social situations.
