van Doorn, Johnny; Matzke, Dora; Wagenmakers, Eric-Jan – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2020
Sir Ronald Fisher's venerable experiment "The Lady Tasting Tea" is revisited from a Bayesian perspective. We demonstrate how a similar tasting experiment, conducted in a classroom setting, can familiarize students with several key concepts of Bayesian inference, such as the prior distribution, the posterior distribution, the Bayes…
