Statistical Modeling in Psychology

Abstract / short description:
The Research Training Group (RTG) “Statistical Modeling in Psychology (SMiP)” aims to overcome a persistent and growing challenge in behavioral research, namely, the gap between (a) substantive research in basic and applied fields of psychology and (b) latest developments in statistical modeling and psychometrics (Sharpe, 2013). To counteract the segregation of psychology into substantive science and statistical methodology, the RTG conceives statistical models as frameworks for formalizing psychological theories and research questions. Theoretical predictions can thus be phrased in terms of model parameters, and state-of-the-art statistical techniques can be used both to measure psychological constructs via parameter estimation and to test these predictions using up-to-date methods of model selection and model testing.
