Abstract

This chapter explains why we think statistical methodology matters 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 some alternatives. Throughout the book we aim to critically evaluate current practices in HCI and support a less rigid, procedural view of statistics in favour of "fair statistical communication". Each chapter provides scholars and practitioners with the methods and tools to do so.
