When measuring statistical significance, something called a p-value shows whether or not the result is statistically significant. The threshold for statistically significant P-values can be set at different levels, but usually .05 is selected. When this is the threshold, any p-value below .05 is considered statistically significant. In this case, the p-value is measuring whether the differences between the students’ pretest and posttest scores are statistically significant. As the results show, the p-values for five of the categories were below the threshold of .05. In plain language, this suggests that the Speaker Program is indeed improving students’ attitudes about people with mental illness. Specifically, they are less likely to think students with mental illness are dangerous, less likely to be afraid, less likely to think students with mental health issues should be in different classes, less likely to be angry with students with mental illness, and less likely to avoid them socially.
