In this way researchers can get published, but this also creates a high percentage of false studies. As we learned in class, the p-value is the conditional probability of getting data at least as extreme as what was observed GIVEN the Null Hypothesis is true. Many people incorrectly interpret a low p-value to mean there is a high probability that the claim they desire to publish…

This week, you have read about hypothesis testing and will now apply this knowledge by writing a paper that addresses the following: Provide an example of a hypothesis where a one-tailed hypothesis test would be used. Provide an example of a hypothesis where a two-tailed hypothesis test would be used. If a researcher has set alpha at 0.05 for a two-tailed hypothesis test, what is the p-value required to reject the null hypothesis? A researcher has set alpha at 0.05.…
