Soon to Appear in JASP: Logistic Regression, Hierarchical Regression, Progress Bars, and More

The JASP team is in the final stages of testing the upcoming version, which is scheduled for release next week. The upcoming version, 0.8.3., contains many new features. My personal favorites: JASP 0.8.3 includes frequentist logistic regression (hat tip to the hmeasure R package for the confusion matrix diagnostics; Anagnostopoulos, Hand, & Adams, 2012). Kudos to Erik-Jan van Kesteren for…

Introducing JASP 0.8.2.0

Released this week, JASP version 0.8.2.0 brings a number of improvements. For data visualization, the most prominent advance is the extension of the “split-by” functionality (courtesy of JASP team member Erik-Jan van Kesteren). To demonstrate how it works, we plot data from a study conducted at the University of Melbourne in the 1970s, examining the possible relation between hair color…

Bayesian Spectacles for Everyone!

On particular occasions I find myself almost indifferent about the distinction between frequentist and Bayesian statistics. Usually this happens on weekends, after a few drinks, when my son has fallen asleep, and I am watching my favorite TV show. In those moments of weakness, I find myself thinking “Why all the fuss — often the two paradigms lead to the…

Two Summer Workshops in Amsterdam

This year we organize two summer workshops in Amsterdam – the first focuses on Bayesian cognitive modeling, and the second focuses on Bayesian statistics with JASP. Before I outline the content of these workshops, let me recount how it was that bitter envy drove me to practical Bayesian modeling. A little over 10 years ago, in a small guest office…
