In research it is common to use p-values to decide whether an effect is found in a study or not. But can the p-value be trusted? It turns out that more often than researchers realize, it cannot!
Too often researchers unintentionally p-hack their results to their favored outcome. The fact p-hacking (most often) happens unintentional is scary, it means that it potentially can happen to all of us.
In this workshop by Maurits Masselink, you will learn what p-hacking is, how it happens, how to spot it, and importantly, what researchers can do to prevent it from happening as best as possible.
When? 24th of June, 13:00-14:30 CEST
For whom? Open to all
