Developmental Ordering, Scale Types, and Strong Inference.
Dixon, James A.
Developmental Psychology, v34 n1 p131-45 Jan 1998
Suggests that testing developmental ordering hypotheses is difficult because rare use of ratio scales prevents direct comparison of measures. Demonstrates that the observed data pattern is constrained by the underlying relationship--although observed data pattern may not reflect the exact relationship, it limits possible relationships. Shows the method of strong inference which allows systematic rejection of competing ordering hypotheses. (Author/KB)
