Data Editing in JASP

Occasionally I get feedback from JASP users who write: “I would like to be able to edit data directly in JASP”. Each time I discuss this issue, however, I can convince our users that the way you can edit data with JASP is smarter. That’s why I’d like to expose my arguments in this blog post. First of all, you…

How to Run JASP in your Browser

When we designed JASP we faced a difficult choice: should we implement a standalone application or a web application? After due deliberation we chose the standalone option. We have revisited this decision several times but always ended up sticking to our initial choice. However, web applications do have some advantages over standalone versions. For instance, web applications are easy to…

Teaching Bayesian Estimation with the Summary Stats Module

Background The JASP Summary Stats module allows practitioners to complement frequentist analyses with a Bayesian alternative, and do so easily and efficiently. As the name suggests, the Summary Stats module only requires commonly-reported summary statistics such as the observed -value and the sample size . The ability to conduct Bayesian analyses from summary statistics is particularly useful when the raw…

How to Perform a Network Analysis in JASP

Network analysis is a relatively new and promising method for modeling interactions between large numbers of variables. Instead of trying to reduce the structure of the variables to their shared information, as is done in latent variable modeling, we estimate the relation between all variables directly. In this blogpost, we provide a short tutorial on how to do network analyses…

How to Conduct a Multinomial Test and Chi-Square Test in JASP

The analysis of categorical data has a long history and can be traced back to some of most influential statisticians: Karl Pearson and Sir Ronald Fisher. In 1900, Pearson first introduced the -statistic and thus the initial versions of the now known multinomial test and goodness-of-fit test. Today, the multinomial test and the goodness-of-fit test have become a standard procedure…
