Unformatted text preview: by chance.” It is the probability we are willing to risk that we say H is false when it is really true. If the p-value is less than α then we have statistically significant evidence against the null hypothesis. General Procedure (1) Set up hypothesis statement (2) Set Level of Significance ( α ) (3) Gather the Data (4) Calculate the p-value (5) Draw your conclusion Possible Conclusions: We have significant evidence against the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative hypothesis.
