From Jeff Starns
I’m writing to invite you to a discussion entitled “What should we do with p-values?” that will be held next Wed. (9/18) at noon in Tobin 423. Misuse of p-values (p hacking, interpreting p as the chance of error, etc.) is a common theme in discussions about the replication crisis, but you don’t see a lot of discussion on the *proper* use of p-values. We will explore the latter in an open discussion format. We’ll have some Psych 240 instructors to moderate, but we are trying for a conversation, not a lecture. All are welcome to come share their approach to using (or eschewing) p-values. Maybe we’ll be able to add some “Thou shalt”s to all the “Thou shalt not”s in the p-value rule book. This is technically the cognitive brownbag spot, but we would like to get people from other
areas joining the discussion. Hope to see you there!
