Summary

This paper examines some of the implications of testing for statistical significance. After considering methodological issues raised by two examples from the literature, the paper proceeds to look in detail at a variety of misunderstandings attached to the reporting of "significant" results. It is concluded that significance testing is of limited utility and highly misleading. Implications of abandoning the significance test are considered. (JL)
