A common tool used in the process of comparing classifiers is

However, there are many researchers attempting to obtain statistical significance through a blinding evaluating of the p-value<0.05 condition, ignoring

highlights possible problems caused by the misuse of the hypothesis test and

a better decision making. Therefore, two case studies applying Student’s

are presented.
