Browser-based experiments in _magpie

Material for course at ESSLLI 2019 (Riga, Latvia)

Experimental work is hard. Opportunities for suboptimality and failure abound. This course is all about avoiding pitfalls and cultivating a mindset aimed at continually improving practices. We will execute the whole process of implementation, execution and data analysis during this course, based on a replication of an existing experiment, which we will preregister. We do this using _magpie, an architecture to help realize browser-based experiments.

This is the material for a course taught at ESSLLI 2019 (Riga, Latvia).
