With regard to the one sided hypothesis test, we propose a likelihood ratio that might be viewed as a Bayes/Non-Bayes compromise in the spirit of I. J. Good (1983). The influence of A. W. F. Edwards (1972) will also be apparent. Although we will develop some general ideas, most of our effort will focus on tests of a single unknown mean and the specific case of a sample from a normal population with unknown mean and known variance.
