Details. Exactly one of the parameters n, delta, power, sd, and sig.level must be passed as NULL, and that parameter is determined from the others.Notice that the last two have non-NULL defaults, so NULL must be explicitly passed if you want to compute them.

To reduce the probability of committing a Type I error, making the alpha (p) value more stringent is quite simple and efficient. To decrease the probability of committing a Type II error, which is closely associated with analyses' power, either increasing the test's sample size or relaxing the alpha level could increase the analyses' power.

Because effect size can only be calculated after you collect data from program participants, you will have to use an estimate for the power analysis. Common practice is to use a value of 0.5 as it indicates a moderate to large difference. For more information on effect size, see: Effect Size Resources Coe, R. (2000). Curriculum, Evaluation, and.

I am applying Gamma, Exponential, Lognormal, Loglogistic and Weibull Distributions. But null hypothesis is rejected every time. Drought Duration is discrete data like (1,1,2,1,1,3,2,1,1,1,1,4,1,1.

Even if you choose a probability level of 5 percent, that means there is a 5 percent chance, or 1 in 20, that you rejected the null hypothesis when it was, in fact, correct. You can err in the opposite way, too; you might fail to reject the null hypothesis when it is, in fact, incorrect. These two errors are called Type I and Type II, respectively. Table 1 presents the four possible outcomes.

Three R functions are supplied to provide basic computations related to designing group sequential clinical trials: 2. 1. The gsDesign() function provides sample size and boundaries for a group sequential design based on treatment e ect, spending functions for boundary crossing probabilities, and relative timing of each analysis. Standard and user-speci ed spending functions may be used. In.

I was asked in the comments for the R code for the ranked probability score, so instead of posting it deep down in the comments I thought I’d post it as a proper blog instead. The ranked probability score (RPS) is a measure of how similar two probability distributions are and is used as a way to evaluate the quality of a probabilistic prediction.
