APS-SMEP Methodological Workshop Series
Randomization Tests for Single-Case Experiments Using R
Thursday, May 24, 2012,
11:30 AM - 3:20 PM
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the Single Case Randomization Tests, R version (SCRT-R) package. Some theoretical background regarding randomization tests will be provided, together with exercises and hands-on experience using the package. Participants will be shown how to perform a visual analysis (making a graphical representation of the single-case data, plotting a measure of central tendency, displaying information about variability in the data, and visualizing trends); how to calculate randomization test p-values; how to include effect size measures in their analyses (Standardized Mean Difference, Percentage of Nonoverlapping Data, and Percentage of Data points Exceeding the Median); and how to perform a meta-analysis of replicated single-case experiments. The focus of this workshop will be on behavioral applications and on understanding the results of statistical analyses rather than on the mathematical or algorithmic background of the techniques presented.
