To prepare for this Discussion:
- Review the Learning Resources related to hypothesis testing, meaningfulness, and statistical significance.
- Review Magnussonâ€s web blog found in the Learning Resources to further your visualization and understanding of statistical power and significance testing.
- Review the American Statistical Associationâ€s press release and consider the misconceptions and misuse of p-values.
- Consider the scenario:
- A research paper claims a meaningful contribution to the literature based on finding statistically significant relationships between predictor and response variables. In the footnotes, you see the following statement, â€œgiven this research was exploratory in nature, traditional levels of significance to reject the null hypotheses were relaxed to the .10 level.â€
Post your response to the scenario in which you critically evaluate this footnote. As a reader/reviewer, what response would you provide to the authors about this footnote?
Be sure to support your Main Post and Response Post with reference to the weekâ€s Learning Resources and other scholarly evidence in APA Style.
