Consider the scenario:
A research paper claims a meaningful contribution to the literature based on finding statistically significant relationships between predictor and response variables. In the footnotes, you see the following statement, â€œgiven this research was exploratory in nature, traditional levels of significance to reject the null hypotheses were relaxed to the .10 level.â€
