Sample text

Since significance testing only can control for or test variables that are selected for study in the original research design, it is important to use a driving integrative conceptual model that considers as many plausible predictor or control variables that are addressed by a guiding theory (thus making it as integrative as possible). This is critical to increasing a design’s experimental or exploratory sensitivity by generating and accounting for positive findings as well as determining why single-case (individual) out- 7 liers that exhibit responses opposite to those proposed by an investigation’s hypothesis occur (Morton & Torgerson, 2003).

This is accomplished in part by hiding information that we would consider in making decisions if we were aware of it. Ellul (1965) argued that because propaganda is deceptive, it always has a negative effect. Isn’t one person’s propaganda another person’s carefully gathered evidence? Using the definitions of propaganda and critical inquiry presented here, it is not. For example, in the former, evidence against favored views is hidden. In critical appraisal, evidence related to claims is actively sought, such as critical tests, and open discussion of competing views is valued (Popper, 1972, 1994).
