\title{Find Default Equivalence (ROPE) Region Bounds}
rope_range(x, ...)

\method{rope_range}{default}(x, verbose = TRUE, ...)

This function attempts at automatically finding suitable "default"
values for the Region Of Practical Equivalence (ROPE).
\cite{Kruschke (2018)} suggests that the region of practical
equivalence could be set, by default, to a range from \code{-0.1} to
\code{0.1} of a standardized parameter (negligible effect size
according to Cohen, 1988).

\item For \strong{linear models (lm)}, this can be generalised to
\ifelse{html}{\out{-0.1 * SD<sub>y</sub>, 0.1 *
    SD<sub>y</sub>}}{\eqn{[-0.1*SD_{y}, 0.1*SD_{y}]}}.\preformatted{\\item For **logistic models**, the parameters expressed in log odds
ratio can be converted to standardized difference through the formula
\ifelse{html}{\out{&pi;/&radic;(3)}}{\eqn{\pi/\sqrt{3}}}, resulting in a
range of `-0.18` to `0.18`.

\\item For other models with **binary outcome**, it is strongly
recommended to manually specify the rope argument. Currently, the same
default is applied that for logistic models.

\\item For models from **count data**, the residual variance is used.
This is a rather experimental threshold and is probably often similar to
`-0.1, 0.1`, but should be used with care!

\\item For **t-tests**, the standard deviation of the response is
used, similarly to linear models (see above).

\\item For **correlations**, `-0.05, 0.05` is used, i.e., half
the value of a negligible correlation as suggested by Cohen's (1988)
rules of thumb.

\\item For all other models, `-0.1, 0.1` is used to determine the
ROPE limits, but it is strongly advised to specify it manually.
