If one has no program to give exact P-values and is not prepared to seek a Monte Carlo approximation for small to medium samples it may be better to refer to published tables even though many give only values required for significance at a ‘nominal’ 5 or 1 per cent level in one- or two-tail tests. Due to discontinuities in the distribution of P-values the exact levels are not precisely 5 ©2001 CRC Press LLC or 1 per cent. For most published tables the exact values are the closest possible values that do not exceed the nominal significance levels although a few tables give a value as close as possible to the nominal level even if that closest value exceeds the nominal level.

However, for the procedures we describe sensible use of either approach will usually lead to similar conclusions despite the different logical foundations, so for consistency we use the frequentialist approach throughout. 5 ETHICAL ISSUES Ethical considerations are important both in general working practices (Gillon, 1986) and in the planning and conduct of investigations (Hutton, 1995). The main principles are respect for autonomy, nonmaleficence, beneficence and justice. Many research proposals need to be assessed by ethical committees before being approved.

Clearly, when H 0 does not hold there is more likely to be a preponderance either of positive or of negative signs associated with the d i. 2, but there we considered only the numbers of positive or negative signs and not the magnitudes of the associated d i and this required no assumption of symmetry for its validity. 1 The problem. The heart rate (beats per minute) when standing was recorded for seven members of a tutorial group. We assume that in the population of such students the distribution of heart rates when standing is symmetric.
