Project

Hypothesis formulation, evaluation and decisions
Different projects that concern aspects of the formulation of informative hypotheses.
The Bayes factor can be used to evaluate informative hypotheses. However, little is known about the frequentist properties of a Bayes factor. Furthermore, it is important to consider what conclusion is made based on the Bayes factor. Different decision strategies result in differences in the minimally required sample size, relevant (error) probabilities and conclusions that can be drawn.
Additionally, if multiple people are evaluated consecutively, how can the evidence be aggregated and what information does this provide us?
