Two New Stats Help Pages! Both on p-Values

jacob-cohenToday, I uploaded two new pages to the “Statistics Help” tab on my website.
They are:

The Meaning of p-Values: A Guide for Social and Organizational Science
Students & Researchers

The p-Value Controversy: A Guide for Social and Organizational Science Students &
Researchers

As apparent from the titles, both pages focus on p-values.  Whenever I teach a class, about statistics or otherwise, students seem to only care about p-values when understanding studies’ results.  Unfortunately, much is still unknown if only
p-values are interpreted.  The first page provides an overview into the theory, logic, and calculation of p-values.  The second page reviews the controversy of p-values – one that is still ongoing today.

If you are still confused about p-values after reading these two pages, please email me at mch248@psu.edu.  We can chat, and I can figure out additions to the pages to clarify the concepts.
