The Logic of Interpreting Evidence of Developmental Ordering: Strong Inference and Categorical Measures.
Dixon, James A.; Moore, Colleen F.
Developmental Psychology, v36 n6 p826-34 Nov 2000
Analyzes the logical basis of testing developmental order hypotheses with categorical measures. Argues that depending on whether saltatory or continuous developmental changes are being assessed, the observed relationship between categorical measures yields different types of information about developmental ordering. Maintains that when change is continuous, the relationship between measures disconfirms one or more ordering hypotheses. (Author/KB)
