Now the writer of the EEF report on Philosophy says that the way Mathematicians and Scientists do Statistics is all wrong

The writer of the EEF report on Philosophy, Professor Stephen Gorad, has now openly admitted that he thinks that the way that Mathematicians and Scientists do Statistics is wrong and should be banned.

The significance test is how Mathematicians and Scientists do Statistics.

Psychologists invented the Effect Size as the “New Statistics” to replace it. It is unknown to Mathematicians.

When the Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider were looking for the Higgs Boson particle, to be sure they had really found it they used a significance test, called the five sigma test.

5sigma

So, on one side of the argument we have the people who found the Higgs Boson, the other, Stephen Gorard. The decision is yours.
