This three-day course discusses the evaluation of theory-based hypotheses using p-values, the Bayes factor, and information criteria. Contemporary phenomena will be covered, like publication bias; questionable research practices; the replication crisis; the statistical evaluation of replication studies; and studies in which multiple data sets are used to evaluate the same research question. The course will be non-technical in nature, that is, it is targeted at students and researchers who want to use the approaches presented for the evaluation of their own data.

In this one-day course participants will be introduced to informative hypotheses that are alternatives for the traditional null and alternative hypotheses, and, to the Bayes factor and GORIC which are alternatives for the p-value. This course is applied, hands-on, and built around concepts and not formulas.
