Abstract

Several proposals that enable to complement the information offered in statistical hypothesis testing are described. Using these proposals reduce the most hard critic that significance tests have suffered: Significance tests do not offer information about the magnitude of the relationship among the involved variables. The proposals that are discussed in this paper are: Confidence intervals, effect size, binomial effect size display, counternull value and common language effect size indicator.
