This goal of this session is to explain and demonstrate the good and the bad of Null Hypothesis Significance Testing (NHST) in the context of evaluation research. Alternative techniques (e.g., Confidence Intervals, effect sizes, meta-analyses) are presented and sized up against NHST using actual and simulated data. We hope this session will help demystify a number of statistical tools that evaluators have at their disposal.
