In Chapters 2, 3, and 4 inequality constrained analysis of variance was introduced and illustrated. This chapter contains an evaluation of inequality constrained analysis of variance. Section 5.2 contains an evaluation from the perspective of psychologists on the use of inequality constrained analysis of variance. The questions raised will be discussed in Sections 5.3 and 5.4. Among other things, the interpretation of posterior model probabilities and the sensitivity of Bayesian model selection with respect to the choice of the prior distribution will be discussed.
