Statistical significance testing, hypothetico-deductive method, and theory evaluation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):292-293 (2000)
Abstract
Chow's endorsement of a limited role for null hypothesis significance testing is a needed corrective of research malpractice, but his decision to place this procedure in a hypothetico-deductive framework of Popperian cast is unwise. Various failures of this version of the hypothetico-deductive method have negative implications for Chow's treatment of significance testing, meta-analysis, and theory evaluation.
