The Numbers Game.
Bracey, Gerald W.
American School Board Journal, v181 n6 p26-29 Jun 1994
A research psychologist and education consultant offers school board members some principles for appraising statistics: (1) distinguish between rates and numbers; (2) distinguish between ranks and scores; (3) try to "look through" the pictorial representation of data; (4) double check the data for accuracy; and (5) consider the source of the data.
