Using the classical t test statistic for a one- or two-sample design, this function computes the corresponding Bayes factor test.

1 2 | ```
ttest.tstat(t, n1, n2 = 0, nullInterval = NULL,
rscale = "medium")
``` |

`t` |
classical t statistic |

`n1` |
size of first group (or only group, for one-sample tests) |

`n2` |
size of second group, for independent-groups tests |

`nullInterval` |
optional vector of length 2 containing lower and upper bounds of an interval hypothesis to test, in standardized units |

`rscale` |
numeric prior scale |

This function can be used to compute the Bayes factor
corresponding to a one-sample, a paired-sample, or an
independent-groups t test, using the classical t
statistic. It can be used when you don't have access to
the full data set for analysis by `ttestBF`

,
but you do have the test statistic.

For details about the model, see the help for
`ttestBF`

, and the references therein.

The Bayes factor is computed via Gaussian quadrature.

If `nullInterval`

is defined, then two Bayes factors
will be computed: The Bayes factor for the interval
against the null hypothesis that the standardized effect
is 0, and the corresponding Bayes factor for the
compliment of the interval. For each Bayes factor, a
vector of length 2 containing the computed log(e) Bayes
factor (against the point null), along with a
proportional error estimate on the Bayes factor is
returned.

## Classical example: Student's sleep data
data(sleep)
plot(extra ~ group, data = sleep)
## t.test() gives a t value of -4.0621
t.test(extra ~ group, data = sleep, paired=TRUE)
## Gives a Bayes factor of about 17
## in favor of the alternative hypothesis
result <- ttest.tstat(t = -4.0621, n1 = 10)
exp(result[['bf']])
