I think this phrase must be missing a word: "Specifically, the null hypothesis allows to attach an attribute" ... allows whom? Should there be an "us" or "the researchers"? The entirety of number 2 under "The testing process" seems to be saying we need to choose the null wisely, but it's just very unclear, and this seems to be a central part. And attach an attibute to what? The null hypothesis? Any help/edits to make it more clear are much appreciated.TedPSS (talk) 02:50, 21 February 2014 (UTC)TedPSS
I do recognize that both the Null hypothesis and Alternative hypothesis pages are somewhat long, and statistical hypothesis testing is a rather large topic to cover. However, it seems cumbersome to split up two such indivisible types of hypotheses and explain each separately. It results in a lot of redundant repetition of content and examples. Also consider those wanting to learn and must wade through three pages on basically the same points (the tests, history, etc sections are much more naturally divisible). Can't we rather split up the main topic by other ways? Or alternatively, merge Null hypothesis and Alternative hypothesis into one Null and alternative hypothesis with sections for each, and broaden this latter page up for more than the narrow statistical perspective?
