Levin, Joel R.
Research in the Schools, v5 n2 p43-53 Fall 1998
Outlines concerns that must be addressed by those who advocate replacing statistical hypothesis-testing with alternative data-analysis strategies. Suggests that commonly recommended alternatives are not perfect and that various hypothesis-testing modifications can be implemented to make the process and its conclusions more credible. Hypothesis testing can add to the story-telling function of a research report. (SLD)
