Informative Hypotheses: Theory and Practice for Behavioral and Social Scientists by Herbert Hoijtink
2011 | ISBN: 1439880514 | English | 241 Pages | PDF | 3.10 MB

When scientists formulate their theories, expectations, and hypotheses, they often use statements like: ``I expect mean A to be bigger than means B and C"; ``I expect that the relation between Y and both X1 and X2 is positive"; and ``I expect the relation between Y and X1 to be stronger than the relation between Y and X2". Stated otherwise, they formulate their expectations in terms of inequality constraints among the parameters in which they are interested, that is, they formulate Informative Hypotheses.
