A Philosophical Inquiry into the Existence of Theoretical Distributions and Its Implication to Educational and Psychological Researchers.
Yu, Chong Ho; Ohlund, Barbara
This paper discusses the existence of theoretical distributions subsumed within mathematical reality and it highlights several meaningful implications for psychological researchers to consider in the application of statistical procedures. It begins with a brief overview of the misinterpretation of statistical testing, followed by a discussion of mathematical reality. In addition, the paper presents ideas for and against theories of mathematical reality developed by noted scholars, and it elucidates inconsistencies within these theories. The conclusion highlights practical implications for educational and psychological researchers when they implement statistical procedures. (Contains 2 figures and 30 references.) (SLD)
