JASP is an open-source statistics package designed to make Bayesian statistics accessible. The package is very user-friendly and is perfect for introducing students to statistics with its minimalist design and continuously updated output. You can download it for free from their website.

Introduction to JASP

I am in the process of writing a guide to transition students from using SPSS to JASP. You can access both the guide and the data sets I used for the examples on the Open Science Framework. The sourcing of the data sets are credited to Kevin McIntyre who made them available on the Open Stats Lab.

The guide covers the following topics:

  • How to navigate around JASP
  • Getting basic descriptive statistics and plots
  • Assessing parametric assumptions
  • Conducting independent and paired samples T-Tests
  • Calculating the correlation between two variables
  • One-way repeated measures and independent samples ANOVA
  • Bayesian paired samples T-Test

Feel free to use it yourself or in your teaching. If you have any feedback (positive or negative) feel free to contact me.
