Is it still possible to do Bayesian polynomial contrasts in your program using the following transformation?
The goal is to check the cubic contrast for 7 levels.
In this case, the cubic contrast is -1 1 1 0 -1 -1 1.
*multiply Level1 by -1 Level2 by 1, Level 3 by 1 and so on…
*Then add level 1,2 &3 to a new variable, for example, var 1
*Then add levels 5,6 &7 to a new variable, for example, var 2 (absolute values)
*In the next step, can I use a T test to check the differences between the two means
and then look at the Bayesian value to give me an indication if there is or isn’t a cubic trend?
