Every semester, I try to upload my lectures to the University of South Alabama’s course management site, and, every semester, I run out of space before the halfway mark of the semester. Our IT department recently recommended that I upload my videos to YouTube to avoid these space difficulties. So, I am doing just that!
I already uploaded my first two lectures. The first is a general review of statistics with a focus on descriptive statistics and p-values. The second is an overview of one-variable chi-square tests and the chi-square test of independence (also called two-variable chi-square tests). The links are provided below:
Lecture 1 – Review – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IvU7uTQ9u0

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact me at MHoward@SouthAlabama.edu.
Hi all! I just made a new post on StatisticalBullshit.com about p-values. Use the following link to read more!
If you have any specific topics that you’d like to read about, please let me know by emailing MHoward@SouthAlabama.edu.
Today, I uploaded two new pages to the “Statistics Help” tab on my website.
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 &
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We can chat, and I can figure out additions to the pages to clarify the concepts.
