Throw that Out?

Lyrics & Music © 2017 by Greg Crowther

When should the data be kept as is?
Try to think about a real-life case.
If you toss a point just to reach significance,
That exclusion would be off-base.
When can the data be clipped and trimmed?
Try to picture a scenario.
If you toss a point because the measurement was done wrong,
That exclusion just might be the way to go.

Throw that bad point out!
Should we throw that bad point out?
The IRB is not a group to flout.
Should we throw that bad point out?

When should a study be redesigned?
Note the principles we must apply.
If subjects don't provide their informed consent ,
The risk to the subjects may be deemed too high.

Throw that study out!
Should we throw that study out?
The IRB is not a group to flout.
So should we throw that study out?
