Perspectives on the Use of Null Hypothesis Statistical Testing. Part III: the Various Nuts and Bolts of Statistical and Hypothesis Testing
Marmolejo-Ramos, Fernando; Cousineau, Denis
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v77 n5 p816-818 Oct 2017
The number of articles showing dissatisfaction with the null hypothesis statistical testing (NHST) framework has been progressively increasing over the years. Alternatives to NHST have been proposed and the Bayesian approach seems to have achieved the highest amount of visibility. In this last part of the special issue, a few alternative approaches are examined. Jamil, Marsman, Ly, Morey, and Wagenmakers feature the Bayesian approach in the comparison of proportions. Trafimow, on the other hand, proposes the coefficient of confidence as an a priori inferential statistic to be used as an alternative to both Bayesian and NHST procedures. Grice, Yepes, Wilson, and Shoda propose a method called observation oriented modelling, a method that relies less on estimators of location and scale and instead focuses on the visual examination of data to detect and explain dominant patterns within a set of observations. In this article the authors write that their hope is that the reader will discover the miscellany of approaches to statistical inference that are available.
