MOTE – GitHub to R Ready!


I have so much stuff backlogged to blog about – especially that we are working on fully integrating to OSF and putting up preprints of the cool work we are doing! But this blog post is reserved for HOW EXCITED I AM to announce that MOTE is ready to go to import into R. Run this code in your R:

install.packages(“devtools”) ##only needed if you do not have it yet


Remember that “” sometimes does not copy correctly into R. Go nuts! Ask questions! Give feedback! One thing I did not talk about in the video is a limitation of V in chi-square. Due to the distribution of chi-square, V confidence intervals are only useful on smaller r x c combinations (like 2X2, 3×3). After you hit about 4 rows/columns, the distribution flattens out, and the calculated confidence interval is not around the V value.  For example, a X2 of 14 with sample size 100, with four rows and columns gives you:

v.chi.sq(x2 = 14, n = 100,r = 4, c = 4, a = .05)
[1] 0.6480741

[1] 0.1732051

[1] 0.3241347

[1] 100

[1] 9

[1] 14

[1] 0.1223252

Warning message:
The size of the effect combined with the degrees of freedom is too small to determine a lower confidence limit for the ‘alpha.lower’ (or the (1/2)(1-‘conf.level’) symmetric) value specified (set to zero).

As you can see, this is a limitation of confidence intervals on chi-square. Also, I found more typos :|.
