A Strategy to Determine Causal Directions.
Nigro, George A.
A set of mathematical consistencies that forms conditions of inequality in a theorem is summarized, and a strategy for its application with real data is presented. The theorem and strategy are suggested for immediate use by the practitioner seeking cause-effect relationships in a system of variables to cut down guess work and time in analysis and interpretation, especially in light of the masses of data dealt with in the largely nonexperimental or correlational world of education.
