Hi Sicong,

As far as I know, the Satterthwaite correction performs better than naive-tp (or naive-t) in general, for purposes of providing hypothesis testing procedures with close-to-nominal alpha levels and confidence intervals with close-to-nominal coverage levels. See Pustejovsky & Tipton (2018; https://www.jepusto.com/publication/rve-in-fixed-effects-models/) and citations therein for simulation evidence. See also Huang & Li (2022; https://doi.org/10.3758/s13428-021-01627-0) and Huang, Wiederman, & Zhang (2022; https://doi.org/10.1080/00273171.2022.2077290).

Other non-Satterthwaite approaches include using saddlepoint approximation or Edgeworth approximation. These have not been studied as extensively as the Satterthwaite approximation, so it's less clear which should be preferred. In my own personal experience, I have seldom seen meaningful differences between Satterthwaite and saddlepoint approximations.

Happy weekend all,

Per reading a previous thread, I have a general question regarding applying the function coef_test() while selecting the method to get the t-test df.

  *   I wonder if it is true that Satterthwaite correction is always the preferred method to get df, relative to others like na�ve-tp? Would there be situations that one may prefer to use non-Satterthwaite approach?

Thank you very much!
