5. 765 As in the previous two examples, it may be useful to add the traditional null hypothesis and an unconstrained hypothesis to H1a until H1e . , µ8 is particularly useful in this example. If none of the models under investigation has a better fit than H2 , none of the sets of constraints is supported by the data. It is difficult to obtain information with respect to the inequality constrained hypotheses under investigation, using traditional analysis of variance. A straightforward three-way analysis of variance does not test the hypotheses under investigation (combinations of sets of directional simple effects where inequality constraints are used to specify the direction of the effects) since it evaluates only main, two- and three-way interaction effects.

Assume that we still want to specify a (relatively) uninformative prior. This is obtained by specifying a large value for the prior standard deviation. 5 and with a standard deviation of 10. It can be seen that the distribution is relatively flat and thus providing little or no prior information in the region of interest (0 ≤ µ ≤ 15). 5)2 = (2π · 100)−1/2 exp −2 · 100 . 4) However, it is also possible to model (subjective) prior knowledge about the mean recognition score for DID-patients. 5 are highly unlikely and that an average of about 6 is usually found.
