ird: Improvement Rate Difference (IRD) calculation and line

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) References Examples

Description

This effect size function will compute the IRD and display a graph in the graph window. The user will be prompted to enter a value for a reference line, identify the number of intervention points remaining and the number of baseline data points that would be needed to be removed in order to eliminate all overlap or ties between phases.

Usage

1
IRD(behavior, phaseX, v1, v2)

Arguments

behavior

behavior variable

phaseX

phase variable

v1

first phase letter (e.g., "A")

v2
