An confidence interval is an interval brought out an algorithm that by repeated use gives an X% change to hold the true population value.
The main difference between the P-value and the likelihood of Bayes is:
- P-value is the chance at obtaining the data of more extreme data given the null-hypotheses and the used procedure
The three most important elements of Bayesian statistics are:
- The Prior: the relative plausibility of hypothesis, before seeing the data
- Likelihood: the predictive updating factor
- The Posterior:
The Bayes factor (B) compares the probability of an experimental theory to the probability of the null hypothesis.
It gives the means of adjusting your odds in a continuous way.
- If B is greater than 1, your data support the experimental hypothesis over the
Weaknesses of the Bayesian approach are:
- The prior is subjective
- Bayesian analysis force people to consider what a theory actually predicts, but specifying the predictions in detail may by contentious
- Bayesian analysis escape the paradoxes of
At its most basic, qualitative psychological research can be seen as involving the collection and analysis of non-numerical data through a psychological lens in order to provide rich descriptions and possibly explanations of peoples meaning-making, how they make sense of the...
Criteria that should be held by good qualitative research are:

- Impact and importance
