Directional Hypotheses with the Multiple Linear Regression Approach.
McNeil, Keith A.; Beggs, Donald L.
Two well known directional (one-tailed) tests of significance, mean difference and correlation coefficient, are presented within the multiple linear regression framework. Adjustments on the computed probability level are indicated. The case for a directional interaction research hypothesis is defended. Conservative adjustments on the computed probability level are offered and a more precise computation is requested of statisticians. Emphasis is placed more on the research question being asked than on blind adherence to conventional formulae. (Author)
