Dear researcher
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey. Your answers will help us better understand which statistical methods do researchers in your field usually use. In the following survey you will be presented with a list of methods and assumptions. For each method, we will ask you how commonly it occurs in your field and which assumptions you would expect to be tested.
We also ask you to write down various considerations regarding the assumptions. For example:
- "I usually do not expect authors to check for normality while performing t-test as this test known to be robust to normality assumption violation"
- "I know that homogeneity of variance is a prerequisite for ANOVA, but we never report on this in our field"
- "I do not expect authors to report on normality while performing linear regression as this is implied that they have checked for this before applying the method. Therefore due to length limitation of papers it is uncommon to report on this"
Your responses, along with those from other participants, will be used only for scholarly purposes and will be kept completely confidential.
Thank you again for your time and participation.
