Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The main goal of this course is to familiarize students with basics of

Bayesian data analysis and its applications in psychology.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Bayesian data analysis is an alternative to the classical (frequentist)

approach to statistics, that deals directly with problems of uncertainty

and probability in research problems. As pointed by many authors, power,

flexibility, and easiness of interpretation of Bayesian data analysis makes

it a natural candidate to approach problems in modeling of psychological


During this lab we will learn the basics of Bayesian approach to statistics.

We will learn strengths of Bayesian alternatives to t-test, ANOVA,

correlation and regression analyses, and how to perform them using

open-source software (R and JAGS).

Upon completion of this course:

 students know basics of Bayesian data analysis and it’s theoretical

Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

Students are allowed to miss 2 classes without excuse, 2 more classes in

case of excuse, but will not pass the course in case of more than 4


Additional work is assigned in case more than 2 classes are missed (even

in cases of valid excuse).

The Final grade will be determined by three components: midterm and

final exam scores and amount of points gathered from the home

assignments throughout the semester.

The final grade will be the weighted average computed according to the

following formula: 30% * (midterm score) + 30% * (home assignments) +

40% * (final exam score) = total score

Total score and both exam scores should be at least at the 50% level to

pass the course.

Grading scale:

95%+ = 5!

90-94% = 5

80-89% = 4.5

70-79% = 4

60-69% = 3.5

50-59% 59% = 3

below 50% = 2 (fail)
