Description

pBox computes Box's tail probabilities based on the z-values of the original and the replication study, the corresponding variance ratio, and the significance level.

Usage

3
pBox(zo, zr, c, level = 0.05, alternative = c("two.sided", "one.sided"))

zBox(zo, zr, c, level = 0.05, alternative = c("two.sided", "one.sided"))

Arguments

zo

Numeric vector of z-values from the original studies.

zr

Numeric vector of z-values from replication studies.

c

Numeric vector of variance ratios of the original and replication effect estimates. This is usually the ratio of the sample size of the replication study to the sample size of the original study.

level

Numeric vector of significance levels. Default is 0.05.

alternative

Either "two.sided" (default) or "one.sided". Specifies whether two-sided or one-sided Box's tail probabilities are computed.

Value

pBox returns Box's tail probabilities.

zBox returns the z-values used in pBox.
