Use first ‘conventional’ statistics’ before explaining the results with the ‘magnitude-based’ statistics

“Statistics : it might be interesting to first use ‘conventional’ statistics – before explaining the results with the ‘magnitude-based’ statistics, especially since some of the variables that are used to explain the training status of the subjects only show very small differences.”

Paper rejected from MSSE, 14/04/15

[what most people have not understood yet, it that with null-hypothesis significance testing (NHST), small differences can still be significant although being non substantial practically, just because of a large sample size!! for this reason (among others) MBI is necessary]
