Title: Robust Analytical Methods for Evaluating Educational
Interventions using Randomised Controlled Trials Designs
Description: Analysing data from evaluations of educational interventions using a randomised controlled trial design. Various analytical tools to perform sensitivity analysis using different methods are supported (e.g. frequentist models with bootstrapping and permutations options, Bayesian models). The included commands can be used for simple randomised trials, cluster randomised trials and multisite trials. The methods can also be used more widely beyond education trials. This package can be used to evaluate other intervention designs using Frequentist and Bayesian multilevel models.

ComparePlot
: A plot function to compare different eefAnalytics S3 objects from the eefAnalytics package.It generates bar plot that compares the effect size from eefAnalytics’ methods.
ComparePlot(

Conditional = TRUE,
ES_Total = TRUE,
modelNames
)
Argument | Description |
---|---|
eefAnalyticsList |
A list of eefAnalytics S3 objects from eefAnalytics package. |
group |
a string/scalar value indicating which intervention to plot. This must be one of the values of intervention variable excluding the control group. For a two arm trial, the maximum number of values to consider is 1 and 2 for three arm trial. |
Conditional |
a logical value to indicate whether to plot conditional effect size. The default is Conditional=TRUE, otherwise Conditional=FALSE should be specified for plot based on unconditional effect size. Conditional variance is total or residual variance a multilevel model with fixed effects, whilst unconditional variance is total variance or residual variance from a multilevel model with only intercept as fixed effect. |
ES_Total |
A logical value indicating whether to plot the effect size based on total variance or within school variance. The default is ES_Total=TRUE, to plot effect size using total variance. ES_Total=FALSE should be specified for effect size based on within school or residuals variance. |
modelNames |
a string factor containing the names of model to compare. See examples below. |
ComparePlot
produces a bar plot which compares the effect sizes and the associated confidence intervals from the different models. For a multilevel model, it shows the effect size based on residual variance and total variance.
Returns a bar plot to compare the different methods. The returned figure can be further modified as any ggplot

arguments passed to plot.default |
Plot produces a graphical visualisation depending on which model is fitted:
For srtFREQ()
, plot can only be used when nBoot
or nPerm
is specified to visualise the distribution of bootstrapped or permutated values.
For crtFREQ()
or mstFREQ()
, plot shows the distribution of random intercepts when group=NULL
. It produces histogram of permutated or bootstrapped values when group
is specified and either nBoot
or nPerm
is also specified.
Returns relevant plots for each model.
