Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 664. Reviews the book, Rival hypotheses: Alternative interpretations of data based conclusions by Schuyler W. Huck and Howard M. Sandler (1979). The authors say that their main objective is to sharpen the ability of readers to detect alternative hypotheses and to learn to discriminate between the possible and the plausible ones. I suspect that a student who could resist, looking at the solutions too soon would indeed benefit from working through this book. It would make a useful adjunct text in a beginning course on experimental design. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
