What exactly is a P value? And what does it really mean when we say something is "statistically significant"? While it may sound impressive, it's frequently misinterpreted as both definitive of CME effectiveness and complex in determination. This OnDemand session – Calculating P Values: A Step-by-Step Guide – is designed to "peel back the curtain" on P value and clarify its definition, as well as how it can be easily calculated using commonly available tools.
Specifically, participants will be provided with step-by-step instructions for calculating a P value for two common CME assessment formats (rating scales and multiple choice questions) and detailed explanations regarding interpretation of results. Understanding P is not restricted to statisticians – its determination and meaning is accessible to any and all CME practitioners. This session will de-mystify statistical tests of significance and allow all participants to immediately incorporate such tools into their practice.
