Some Questions–Would You Care to Comment?
Blogs sometimes either elicit lots of comments, or they don’t. While writing, I’m always wondering how readers might react, what they (you) might be thinking. In my most recent post I asked about experiences or thoughts readers might have about teaching meta-analysis, especially in the intro course and especially using the forest plot.
On average something approaching 100 people a day come to this site. So it’s a good bet that there are some interesting experiences and observations out there. Please feel encouraged to share, if you would care to, using the comment box below. You could react to any of our posts, or raise some new topic, or even ask your own question(s).
Here are just a few of the issues I’d love to hear about:
1. As I mentioned, the teaching of the forest plot.
2. Experiences with ITNS and the ITNS materials in the classroom, or for self-teaching.
3. JASP and/or jamovi. Each of these is a free, open source software package, currently in development but available for use now. Each aims to be highly usable, offer a wide range of data analysis facilities, and serve as a free replacement for SPSS. I’d love to hear of any experiences with either of these, especially along with ITNS. (We are in touch with the developers of both JASP and jamovi. We hope that jamovi, at least, will be developed to include new-statistics facilities, as in ITNS. Anyone interested in helping with this?)
Hoping to hear from you; thanks!
