## S3 method for class 'VCA'
ranef(object, term = NULL, mode = c("raw", "student",
  "standard"), quiet = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

object

(VCA) object from which random effects shall be extracted

term

(character) string specifying a term (factor) for which random effects should be extracted, one can also specify an integer which is interpreted as i-th element of 'obj$res.assign$terms'

mode

(character) string or abbreviation specifying whether "raw" residuals should be returned or a transformed version c("student" or "standard")

quiet

(logical) TRUE = will suppress any warning, which will be issued otherwise

...

additional parameters

Details

Extracting the 'RandomEffects' element of an 'VCA' object if this exists and applying standardization (mean 0, sd 1) or studentization. For studentized random effects the i-th random effects is divided by the i-th main diagonal element of matrix O = GZ'QZG, where G is the covariance-matrix of random effects, Z is a design matrix assigning random effects to observations and matrix Q = V"(I - H) (see residuals.VCA for further details).

fit <- anovaVCA(y~day/run, dataEP05A2_1)
ranef(fit)

# get variable-specific random effects (REs)
# both extract the same REs
ranef(fit, "day")
ranef(fit, 1)

# get standardized REs
ranef(fit, "day:run", "standard")

# or studentized REs
ranef(fit, 2, "stu")
