Type I Error Rejecting H 0 when H 0 is actually true The significance level α is the probability of making a type I error. If α =0.01, then there is 1% chance of making a type I error. If H0 is true and the test procedure is used repeatedly on different samples, H0 will be rejected (incorrectly) 1% of the time.

Statistical vs. practical significance What is statistically significant? When the P-value is smaller than the chosen significant level α , it is customary to say that the result is statistically significant. When the result is statistically significant, the null hypothesis is rejected. Statistical vs practical significance Even after H0 has been rejected, the data may suggest that there is no practical difference.
