Part 9: Hypothesis Testing - 2 Davidson and MacKinnon Strategy p Obtain predictions from model A = AFit p Obtain predictions from model B = Bfit p If A is correct, in the combined model (A,Bfit), Bfit should not be significant. p If B is correct, in the combined model (B,Afit), Afit should not be significant. p (Unfortunately), all four combinations of significance and not are possible. ™    22/27
