Invitation www.jerrydallal.com/LHSP/sigtest.htm I invite people, in particular Jack Tomsky., to read the exact way to discuss the NHST features, their limitations and goals. The above Gerard E. Dallal text is in completely accordance with Theory states. Therefore is exempt from fantasies as such are the following: Quoting: Oakes (19863) carried out a study on common misinterpretations of the logic of tests of significance among British psychology academics. Typically, most of these misinterpretations confuse pvalues (i.e, the probability of the data when assuming that the null hypothesis is true) and, especially, statistical significance, with the probability of proving or disproving hypotheses (be this null hypothesis or an alternative hypothesis). Another misinterpretation is the socalled "replication fallacy", which occurs when the pvalue is assumed to represent the probability of finding similar results if the research were to be repeated.
