Example text

Reprinted in Gage, 1960) Hirsch (2002) expressed a similar admonition: Educational research cannot be scientific unless it cultivates and produces theory that will yield causal explanations of the outcomes of educational treatments. A theory of teaching should improve our abilities to explain (understand) teaching, predict the determiners and consequences of teaching, and control (that is, improve) the effectiveness of teaching. The desirability of a theory of teaching also results from the desirability of improving the competence, attractiveness, and rewards of the teaching profession.

But, whereas “theory” connotes formality and rigor, “conjecture” has an informal and fallible flavor. Indeed, Popper’s conception of scientific method, stated in his book’s title, Conjectures and Refutations, expresses something similar to the notion of implicit theory – a conjecture to be subjected to strong efforts at refutation and to be accepted only as long as it survives those efforts.

Except for use in navigation and meteorology, astronomical theory has little or no practical value, in the sense of being useful in the everyday affairs of persons who are not astronomers. Evaluating the Magnitude of Main Effects 19 In other natural sciences, theory has indeed had practical value, that is, has served as a basis for the development of technology that meets human needs.
