Back to Bayes.
James, Roger
Higher Education Review, v32 n1 p68-72 Aut 1999
Drawing on papers by the statistician Robert Matthews, this article questions the standard formula for tests of significance used to validate research results, returning instead to the theorem proposed by Thomas Bayes in the eighteenth century, which starts with a subjective assessment of plausibility.
