Bench scientists often perform statistical tests to determine whether an observation is statistically significant. Many tests report the P value to measure the strength of the evidence that a result is not just a likely chance occurrence.

To make informed judgments about the observations in a biological context, we must understand what the P value is telling us and how to interpret it.

We will develop the concept of statistical significance and tests by introducing the one-sample t-test.
