Why Should You Attend
A research rarely involves just one single statistical test. And multiple testing can result in statistically significant findings just by chance. After all, with the typical Type I error rate of 5% used in most tests, we are allowing ourselves to “get lucky” 1 in 20 times.
There are a number of ways to control for this chance significance. And as with most things statistical, determining a viable adjustment to control for the chance significance depends on what you are doing. Some approaches are good. Some are not so good. And, sometimes an adjustment isn’t even necessary.
