alphaN {alphaN}  R Documentation 
Set the alpha level based on sample size for coefficients in a regression models.
Description
Set the alpha level based on sample size for coefficients in a regression models.
Usage
alphaN(n, BF = 1, method = "JAB", upper = 1)
Arguments
n 
Sample size 
BF 
Bayes factor you would like to match. 1 to avoid Lindley's Paradox, 3 to achieve moderate evidence and 10 to achieve strong evidence. 
method 
Used for the choice of 'b'. Currently one of:

upper 
The upper limit for the range of realistic effect sizes. Only relevant when method="balanced". Defaults to 1 such that the range of realistic effect sizes is uniformly distributed between 0 and 1, U(0,1). 
Value
Numeric alpha level required to achieve the desired level of evidence.
