The issues involved can best be illustrated with several figures. They  represent the factors underlying decisions and therefore are somewhat  similar to those used in statistical decisions. However, their details are  quite different. This first figure is intended to illustrate that: 1) only  findings and their associated interpretation within the range of the  paradigm's tolerance are accepted as plausible findings and acceptable  interpretations; 2) Some facts may be inappropriately integrated within  the existing paradigm (missed opportunity to advance to a better  paradigm); 3) some facts could falsely be attributed to an alternate  paradigm when they are better integrated within the existing paradigm  (false alarm); and 4) some findings are so aberrant that we adjust our  paradigm in order to accommodate them and we are correct in doing so.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
