apa_lineplot(data, ...)

## Default S3 method:
apa_lineplot(
  data,
  id,
  factors = NULL,
  dv,
  tendency = mean,
  dispersion = conf_int,
  level = 0.95,
  fun_aggregate = mean,
  na.rm = TRUE,
  use = "all.obs",
  intercept = NULL,
  args_x_axis = NULL,
  args_y_axis = NULL,
  args_title = NULL,
  args_points = NULL,
  args_lines = NULL,
  args_error_bars = NULL,
  args_legend = NULL,
  jit = 0.3,
  xlab = NULL,
  ylab = NULL,
  main = NULL,
  ...
)

## S3 method for class 'afex_aov'
apa_lineplot(
  data,
  tendency = mean,
  dispersion = conf_int,
  fun_aggregate = mean,
  ...
)

Arguments

data

A data.frame that contains the data or an object of class afex_aov

...

Arguments passed on to apa_factorial_plot

id

Character. Variable name that identifies subjects.

factors

Character. A vector of up to four variable names that is used to stratify the data.

dv

Character. The name of the dependent variable.

tendency

Closure. A function that will be used as measure of central tendency.

dispersion

Closure. A function that will be used to construct error bars (i.e., whiskers). Defaults to conf_int for 95% between-subjects confidence intervals. See details for more options, especially for within-subjects confidence intervals.

level

Numeric. Defines the width of the interval if confidence intervals are plotted. Defaults to 0.95. for 95% confidence intervals. Ignored if dispersion is not a confidence-interval function. See details.

fun_aggregate

Closure. The function that will be used to aggregate observations within subjects and factors before calculating descriptive statistics for each cell of the design. Defaults to mean.

na.rm

Logical. Specifies if missing values are removed. Defaults to TRUE.

use

Character. Specifies a method to exclude cases if there are missing values after aggregating. Possible options are "all.obs" or "complete.obs".

intercept

Numeric. Adds a horizontal line at height intercept to the plot. Can be either a single value or a matrix. For the matrix case, multiple lines are drawn, where the dimensions of the matrix determine the number of lines to be drawn.

args_x_axis

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to axis for customising the x axis.

args_y_axis

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to axis for customising the y axis.

args_title

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to title.

args_points

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to points.

args_lines

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to lines.

args_error_bars

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to arrows.

args_legend

An optional list that contains further arguments that may be passed to legend

jit

Numeric. Determines the amount of horizontal displacement. Defaults to 0.3, defaults to 0.4 if plot = "bars".

xlab

Character or expression. Label for x axis.

ylab

Character or expression. Label for y axis.

main

Character or expression. For up to two factors, simply specify the main title. If you stratify the data by more than two factors, either specify a single value that will be added to automatically generated main title, or specify an array of multiple titles, one for each plot area.

Details

The measure of dispersion can be either conf_int for between-subjects confidence intervals, se for standard errors, or any other standard function. For within-subjects confidence intervals, specify wsci or within_subjects_conf_int.

If between- or within-subjects confidence intervals are requested, you can also specify the area of the cumulative distribution function that will be covered. For instance, if you want a 98% confidence interval, specify level = 0.98. level defaults to 0.95.

Customisation of plot elements

apa_factorial_plot and its descendants apa_barplot, apa_lineplot, and apa_beeplot are wrapper functions that sequentially call plot.new, plot.window, axis (once for x axis, once for y axis), title for axis labels and titles, rect for bars in barplots, points for bee swarms, lines for lines connecting central tendency points, arrows for error bars, points for tendency points, legend for a legend, and lines for intercepts. These calls can be customised by setting the respective parameters args_***.
