An Introduction to Modern Statistical Methods in HCI

Judy Robertson, Maurits Kaptein

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter explains why we think that statistical methodology mat-ters so much to the HCI community, and why we should attempt to improve it. It introduces some flaws in the well-accepted methodology of Null Hypothesis Significance Testing, and briefly introduces alterna-tive. Throughout the book we aim to critically evaluate current prac-tice in HCI and support a less rigid, procedural view of statistics in fa-vour of “fair statistical communication”. Each chapter provides scholars and practitioners with the methods and tools to do so.
