I'm taking a really cool course right now on statistics education, which covers:

  • replication

  • p-values being bad

  • bayesian statistics

  • meta-analyses

A lot of our readings are really fun, and I'll likely write more posts based on them, maybe into a "why social science studies are bad" sequence.

Anyway, this is the first entry that goes over into misinterpretations and issues with p-values and null hypothesis significance testing.
