Bayes Factors: A ‘re-volution’ in psychology

Forskningsoutput: KonferensbidragKonferensabstract

Abstract

In psychology, Bayes Factors (BFs) are being increasingly reported as a complement to p-values. However, just as the mindless computation of p-values encourages a simple dichotomization of study results, the mindless computation of BFs with an overemphasis on hypothesis testing detracts from more useful approaches to interpreting study results, such as parameter estimation. BFs may serve to facilitate the transition from frequentist to Bayesian data analysis, but let us not repeat mistakes of the past. In this short talk, I shall argue that Bayesian parameter estimation is preferred with an example from a recent Master thesis.
