A National Survey of AERA Members' Perceptions of the Nature and Meaning of Statistical Significance Tests.
Mittag, Kathleen C
A national survey of a stratified random sample of members of the American Educational Research Association was undertaken to explore perceptions of contemporary statistical issues, and especially of statistical significance tests. The 225 actual respondents were found to be reasonably representative of the population from which the sample was drawn. The respondents had sophisticated understanding of some statistical issues (e.g., that nonsignificant results may still be important), but other features of the perceptions (e.g., perceptions of stepwise analysis) were not as encouraging. (Contains 1 table, 9 figures, and 28 references.) (Author/SLD)
