Abstract : The F statistic is widely used to test the significance of experimental results in the behavioral sciences. Tabulations of probabilities for F values are available only for a few selected significance levels and degrees of freedom. This paper presents an efficient method for programming computation of the estimated probability for any specific F value. Probabilities are accurate to 4 decimal places and degrees of freedom may range from 4 to 1000. (Author)
