  • August 2nd, 2016. We have published a paper demonstrating the new Threshold Analysis in OOM which can be used as an alternative to logistic regression analysis. The Threshold Analysis also permits the automatic construction of logical combinations of orderings. Here’s the paper: A Simple and Transparent Alternative to Logistic Regression. Advances in Social Science Research Journal, 3(7), 147-165.
  • July 7th, 2016. Congratulations to Gatobu, Arocha, and Hoffman-Goetz on their recent paper Numeracy, Health Numeracy, and Older Immigrants’ Primary Language: An Observation-Oriented Exploration published in Basic and Applied Social Psychology. Here’s a link to the abstract: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/01973533.2016.1197129
  • May 27th, 2016. An updated version of the OOM software was posted along with an updated version of the technical manual (in MS Word format). Please follow the link to the right to download the program and manual for free.
  • March 30th, 2016. Congratulations to Lübke and Sauer who presented a poster at the annual DAGStat meeting in Göttingen, 16 March 2016. Here’s a link to the poster: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/301364374_Observation_Oriented_Modeling_OOM_as_a_Data_Analytic_Tool   and a link to the data: https://osf.io/3j4xr/. They conclude: “Observation Oriented Modelling [Grice, 2011] was proposed to overcome some of the problems in the application of statistical inference methods in human and behavioural sciences. We review and refine this approach and show connections to methods well known in statistical learning. From this point of view it can be shown that Observation Oriented Modellng can indeed be appropriate for some of the tasks in the analysis of observed data. For a practical example, the revised method is demonstrated by analysing the effect of mindfulness training on attentional processes.”
