Significance tests cannot be justified in theory-corroboration experiments

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (2):213-213 (1998)
Abstract
Chow's one-tailed null-hypothesis significance-test procedure, with its rationale based on the elimination of chance influences, is not appropriate for theory-corroboration experiments. Estimated effect sizes and their associated standard errors or confidence limits will always suffice.
