  • October 27th, 2019. A special thanks to Chris Cunningham at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga for his invitation to present at the 15th Annual River Cities I-O (RCIO) Psychology Conference, October 25-26, 2019. I was to present a talk titled “Person-centered data analyses: Observation Oriented Modeling as an alternative and rational data analytics approach.” Unfortunately, due to illness I was not able to attend, and our attempts to present via the internet were not successful. The Powerpoint slides are nonetheless available upon request.
  • Congratulations (!) to Valentine, Buchanan, Scofield, and Beauchamp on the publication of their paper “Beyond p values: Ultilizing multiple methods to evaluate evidence” published in Behaviormetrika, 46(1), 121-144. They compare NHST, Bayes, and OOM methods for analyzing repeated measures data.  
  • March 20th, 2019. A special thanks (!) to David Trafimow and the faculty and students at New Mexico State Universityfor hosting a talk on OOM. It was a pleasure and an honor to visit, especially given my affinity for the Desert Southwest. Godspeed to Dr. Trafimow and several of his colleagues as well as they continue to fight the good fight against NHST.
