REALLY ambitious blogging
The cognitive psychologist author of Mixing Memory is taking on a huge project:
So the other day, I was talking to someone about one of the studies I was planning on posting about. I mentioned one of the results, and he said he’d really like to see the means and standard deviations. I thought to myself, “Alright, I’ll put those in the post,” but when I actually started writing the post, I began to fear that including standard deviations might just be confusing to people who don’t have any background in statistics. So I left them out. But I didn’t feel very good about leaving them out. So I decided to take action, and write a series of posts on the basics of the sorts of statistics that are used in the research I and other behavioral science bloggers post about.
I’ve now written 8, yes 8 of them.
Wow. He wrote them all over a 2-day period while he was sick. That’s furious work for being under the weather.
He plans to start posting them on Friday, then every several days, covering normal distributions, confidence intervals, and much more. I can’t wait to see them. As they come out, I’ll update this post with links.
