  • Cowles And Davis 2006

    Question 1 Cowles and Davis (2016) discussed several factors that contributed to the adoption of the .05 level of statistical significance. The first factor discussed was the discovery that computations can be utilized to measure observational error, by and astronomer, Lambert Adolphe Quetelet. This discovery led to the development of the normal distribution curve utilized today (Cowles & Davis, 2016). Following the development of the normal distribution curve, a measure of variability known as probable error was discovered (Cowles & Davis, 2016). This discovery was the second factor mentioned by Cowles and Davis (2016) that contributed to the .05 level of statistical significance. Although the term probable error was first used in 1818 by Bessel, the concept was used several years before this. In a normal distribution, half of the values will fall within one probable error of the mean. Today, we use standard deviation instead of probable error; probable error is equivalent to approximately two-thirds of a standard deviation. In the late 1800s, several years after the development of probable error, Pearson conducted several studies to assist in fitting observations into theoretical distributions (Cowles & Davis, 2016). Pearson’s discoveries while flipping a coin numerous times led to the discovery of the goodness of fit test. This was the third factor mentioned by Cowles and Davis (2016) that led to the .05 level of statistical significance. This test was used to…
