Parallel Linear Mixed Model (lmmpar)
Embarrassingly Parallel Linear Mixed Model calculations spread across local cores which repeat until convergence.

Magnitude-Based Inferences (mbir)
Allows practitioners and researchers a wholesale approach for deriving magnitude-based inferences from raw data. A major goal of ‘mbir’ is to programmatically detect appropriate statistical tests to run in lieu of relying on practitioners to determine correct stepwise procedures independently.

Test the Homogeneity of Kappa Statistics (kaphom)
Tests the homogeneity of intraclass kappa statistics obtained from independent studies or a stratified study with binary results. It is desired to compare the kappa statistics obtained in multi-center studies or in a single stratified study to give a common or summary kappa using all available information. If the homogeneity test of these kappa statistics is not rejected, then it is possible to make inferences over a single kappa statistic that summarizes all the studies.
