Gordon, Howard R. D.
Journal of Vocational Education Research, v26 n2 p244-71 2001
A sample of 113 American Vocational Education Research Association members (93% with doctorates, 67% with more than 15 years of research experience) disagreed that statistical significance tests should be banned; were less likely to realize that stepwise methods do not identify the best predictor set; and recognized that studies with nonsignificant results can still be important.
