Have you ever asked yourself:

 

  • What statistical model does Optimize use? 
  • What is Bayesian inference?
  • How do you decide when you have a leader?

 

If so, our shiny new Statistics and methodology FAQ will answer all of your questions, and more. 

 

It was just published on the Optimize help center: https://support.google.com/360suite/optimize/topic/7404525.

 

We hope that you enjoy it.

is there a tool to help determine in advance of starting experiment the needed sample size (minimal conversion count) for tests to be statistically significant ?

Hello,

 

Thanks for this documentation. It would be great if you could give more details about how to decide when there is a leader.


I've got real life examples where based on this documentation, the tool should have declared a leader or looser. The leader and looser variants show as green and red respectively in the reporting page but the experiment status keeps saying to keep experiment running.

 

Thank you.
