MTABS Analyses of Chi-square Cross-tabulations at ABSEL

John Dickinson


Cross-tabulation with its accompanying chi-square statistical hypothesis test of independence is among the most commonly applied types of analysis.  This popularity holds for research published in the conference proceedings of the Association for Business Simulation and Experiential Learning (ABSEL), Developments in Business Simulation and Experiential Learning (aka Bernie Keys Library, BKL).  Recently, Dickinson (2019, 2017, 2016) has developed a procedure–Moves To And Beyond Significance (MTABS)–for measuring the reliability of that statistical test.  In light of their popularity at ABSEL, the present study MTABS analyzes several ABSEL cross-tabulations, illustrating a spectrum of results.
