That is not a trivial pedantic distinction to ignore. People end up coming away thinking that the frequentist method provides a measure that it does not.Unknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00227235335343168838noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-987850932434001559.post-38609932056081186822017-02-14T02:40:20.953+01:002017-02-14T02:40:20.953+01:00Hi Daniel, Glad you find BEST useful.

For example, using the TOST for one-sample, you could test whether a score is equivalent to guessing average (e.g., 0.5). <br /><br />I'm not sure this is addressed in the Coursera course - but I will be updating the equivalence assignment in the future now my own paper on this is out, and will add a non-zero example!Daniel Lakenshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18143834258497875354noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-987850932434001559.post-7961250058665800192017-02-13T14:11:31.206+01:002017-02-13T14:11:31.206+01:00Nice post, Daniel.

(It's possible your Coursera course addressed this for TOST. If so, color me embarrassed that I can't remember.)Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13691556381219306479noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-987850932434001559.post-78097488060212515752017-02-12T22:02:51.652+01:002017-02-12T22:02:51.652+01:00So I would argue that a region of practical equiva...So I would argue that a region of practical equivalence (ROPE) is both computationally and conceptually very different from a equivalence testing. <br /><br />A ROPE is a very simple concept, it's still a good concept, but it's also very simple. It's a range of differences between any two parameters where, if the "underlying" difference falls in that range, it isn't large enough to be of interest. This is a very general concept not tied to a specific model or specific parameters. You could use it for differences in means, scale parameters, or any other exotic parameters. You could use it for simple group models, or for more advanced models where it's not even clear how you would calculate a p-value. Even if it was originally introduced together with BEST you can use it with *any* Bayesian model, and once you have fitted a Bayesian model it's straight forward to calculate how much probability is in or out of the ROPE (or use an HDI if you want to).<br /><br />Equivalence testing is something different, it's a procedure that requires you to use a model and a parameter where you can calculate p-values. Using a ROPE can be seen as a way of summarizing a posterior distribution, while equivalence testing relies on p-values. And I would say that there is a big conceptual difference between posterior probabilities and p-values even if they, in a few select cases, are numerically similar.Rasmus Bååthhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16575386339856902265noreply@blogger.com
