I describe and question the argument that in psychological research, the significance test should be replaced (or, at least, supplemented) by a more informative index (viz., effect size or statistical power) in the case of theorycorroboration experimentation because it has been made on the basis of some debatable assumptions about the rationale of scientific investigation. The rationale of theorycorroboration experimentation requires nothing more than a binary decision about the relation between two variables. This binary decision supplies the minor premise for the syllogism implicated when a theory is being tested. Some metatheoretical considerations reveal that the magnitude of the effectsize estimate is not a satisfactory alternative to the significance test.
