linear_class-class {bayes4psy} | R Documentation |

An S4 class for storing results of normal linear model.

**Functions**

summary('linear_class'): prints a summary of the fit.

print('linear_class'): prints a more detailed summary of the fit

show('linear_class'): prints a more detailed summary of the fit.

plot('linear_class'): plots fitted model against the data. Use this function to explore the quality of your fit. Fit will be plotted on the subject level.

plot(‘linear_class', subjects=’boolean'): plots fitted model against the data. Use this function to explore the quality of your fit. You can plot on the subject level (subjects=TRUE) or on the subjects level (subjects=FALSE).

plot_fit('linear_class'): plots fitted model against the data. Use this function to explore the quality of your fit. Fit will be plotted on the subject level.

plot_fit(‘linear_class', subjects=’boolean'): plots fitted model against the data. Use this function to explore the quality of your fit. You can plot on the subject level (subjects=TRUE) or on the subjects level (subjects=FALSE).

plot_trace('linear_class'): traceplot for main fitted model parameters.

get_parameters('linear_class'): returns a dataframe with values of fitted parameters.

get_subject_parameters('linear_class'): returns a dataframe with values of fitted parameters for each subject in the hierarchical model.

compare_means('linear_class', fit2='linear_class'): prints difference in slope and intercept between two groups. You can also provide the rope parameter.

plot_means_difference('linear_class', fit2='linear_class'): a visualization of the difference between two groups. You can plot only slope or intercept by using the par parameter. You can also provide the rope and bins (number of bins in the histogram) parameters.

plot_means('linear_class'): plots density of means. You can plot only slope or intercept by using the par parameter.

plot_means('linear_class', fit2='linear_class'): plots density for the first and the second group means. You can plot only slope or intercept by using the par parameter.

compare_distributions('linear_class', fit2='linear_class'): draws samples from distribution of the first group and compares them against samples drawn from the distribution of the second group.

plot_distributions('linear_class'): a visualization of the fitted distribution.

plot_distributions('linear_class', fit2='linear_class'): a visualization of two fitted distribution.

plot_distributions_difference('linear_class', fit2='linear_class'): a visualization of the difference between the distribution of the first group and the second group. You can plot only slope or intercept by using the par parameter. You can also provide the rope and bins (number of bins in the histogram) parameters.

`extract`

Extract from Stan fit.
