All possible results of 100 coin tosses and their probabilities (when H0 is correct, one-tailed H1) Above, we had an empirical result whose p-value we were interested in, and in order to get that p-value, we moved from the expected H0 results to the extreme values. Now we want to determine, but not exceed, a p-value before we have results and have to proceed the other way round: from an extreme point to the expectation of H0. 05, you begin at the most extreme result on the right – that you lose 100 times – and begin to add the lengths of the bars.

In a spreadsheet for a corpus study, for example, one additional column may contain the name of the corpus file in which the word in question is found; another column may provide the line of the file in which the word was found. In a spreadsheet for an experimental study, one column should contain some unique identifier of each subject; other columns may contain the age of the subject, the sex of the subject, the exact stimulus or some index representing the stimulus the subject was presented with, the order index of a stimulus presented to a subject (so that you can test whether a subject’s performance changes systematically in the course of the experiment), …; v.

Also, you must never explore a data set – the nicer way to say ‘fish for something useable’ – and, when you then find something significant, sell this result as a successful test of a ‘previously formulated’ H1. You may of course explore a data set in search of patterns and hypotheses, but if a data set generates a hypothesis, you must test that hypothesis with different data. But while we have seen above how this comparison of the two probabilities contributes to the decision in favor of or against H1, it is still unclear how this p-value is computed.
