Replication Bayes factors from evidence updating


We describe a general method that allows experimenters to quantify the evidence from the data of a direct replication attempt given data already ac- quired from an original study. These so-called replication Bayes factors are a reconceptualization of the ones introduced by Verhagen and Wagenmakers (2014) for the common t-test. This reconceptualization is computationally simpler and generalizes easily to most common experimental designs for which Bayes factors are available.
