Event Series: SMAC Talks

Though statisticians have long spoken out against rote use of null hypothesis significance testing (NHST) and thresholds for the declaration of "statistical significance" these calls have taken on new life and urgency in the past decade. In this talk, I will provide some background and history to the current movement to get science to a "post p<0.05" era, including recent developments.  I will also present examples of what reform might look like.  The goal is not to give final definitive answers, but rather to provoke thought and discussion - to continue moving the conversation forward.
