Create reports for Bayesian models. The description of the parameters follows the Sequential Effect eXistence and sIgnificance Testing framework (see SEXIT documentation).

## Usage

```
# S3 method for class 'stanreg'

#> - See https://mc-stan.org/rstanarm/articles/priors for changes to default priors!
#> - Default priors may change, so it's safest to specify priors, even if equivalent to the defaults.
#> - For execution on a local, multicore CPU with excess RAM we recommend calling
#> options(mc.cores = parallel::detectCores())

#> We fitted a Bayesian linear model (estimated using MCMC sampling with 4 chains
#> of 500 iterations and a warmup of 250) to predict mpg with qsec and wt
#> (formula: mpg ~ qsec + wt). Priors over parameters were all set as normal (mean
#> = 0.00, SD = 8.43; mean = 0.00, SD = 15.40) distributions. The model's
#> explanatory power is substantial (R2 = 0.81, 95% CI [0.70, 0.90], adj. R2 =
#> 0.79). The model's intercept, corresponding to qsec = 0 and wt = 0, is at 19.94
#> (95% CI [8.47, 31.34]). Within this model:
#>
#> - The effect of qsec (Median = 0.93, 95% CI [0.31, 1.50]) has a 99.80%
#> probability of being positive (> 0), 97.80% of being significant (> 0.30), and
#> 0.00% of being large (> 1.81). The estimation successfully converged (Rhat =
#> 0.998) and the indices are reliable (ESS = 1092)
#> - The effect of wt (Median = -5.03, 95% CI [-6.06, -3.99]) has a 100.00%
#> probability of being negative (< 0), 100.00% of being significant (< -0.30),
#> and 100.00% of being large (< -1.81). The estimation successfully converged
#> (Rhat = 0.997) and the indices are reliable (ESS = 1160)
#>
#> Following the Sequential Effect eXistence and sIgnificance Testing (SEXIT)
#> framework, we report the median of the posterior distribution and its 95% CI
#> (Highest Density Interval), along the probability of direction (pd), the
#> probability of significance and the probability of being large. The thresholds
#> beyond which the effect is considered as significant (i.e., non-negligible) and
#> large are |0.30| and |1.81| (corresponding respectively to 0.05 and 0.30 of the
#> outcome's SD). Convergence and stability of the Bayesian sampling has been
#> assessed using R-hat, which should be below 1.01 (Vehtari et al., 2019), and
#> Effective Sample Size (ESS), which should be greater than 1000 (Burkner, 2017).
