Lorah, Julie Ann – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
The Bayesian information criterion (BIC) can be useful for model selection within multilevel modeling studies. However, the formula for BIC requires a value for N, which is unclear in multilevel models, since N is observed in at least two levels. The present study uses simulated data to evaluate the rate of false positives and power when using a…
