Tests for ESP compare experimental results against probabilities. For example, we could use 5 cards, some of which would be marked with an X and have the remaining cards left blank. The subject would then try to determine whether each card was marked or not without being able to see it. What is the probability that a subject who did not have ESP and was guessing the status of each card would get them all correct?
