Short Tutorial on Performing Network Analysis in JASP

This year’s International Meeting of the Psychometric Society took place in July, in New York. Within the JASP symposium “Psychometric analysis in JASP”, I had the chance to present the new Network Analysis module, released within the latest version of the software. The Network Analysis module, programmed by Don van Den Bergh, is based on Sacha Epskamp’s R package bootnet…

How to Perform Structural Equation Modeling in JASP

With the latest release of JASP, the Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) module has received a few updates to make it more user-friendly. In this blogpost, we go through a famous example of latent mediation in order to show how the functionality of JASP’s SEM module can be used for advanced statistical modeling. The SEM module in JASP is based on…

How to Filter Your Data in JASP

Released last week, JASP 0.9 contains a feature that many users have eagerly anticipated: filtering. This post demonstrates how to use the new filtering functionality by going over several examples. The filtering functionality in JASP has three interfaces: the Click Filter, the Drag and Drop Filter and the R Filter. To illustrate their use, we will analyze a couple of…

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 Request a Feature or Report a Bug in JASP

This blog post explains how you, as a JASP user, can help improve the program — simply give us feedback whenever something is amiss. Specifically, whenever you notice that JASP cannot execute an important task (e.g., filter cases), you can tell us by issuing a feature request; whenever you notice that JASP malfunctions in some way (e.g., the font size…

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…

How to Conduct a Classical One-Sample T-Test in JASP and Interpret the Results

The one-sample t-test is used to answer the question of whether a population mean is the same as a specified number, also called the test value. This blog post shows how to perf-orm the classical version of the one-sample t-test in JASP. Let’s consider an example. Testing the Effect of Overeating on Weight Gain Our example dataset stems from a…
