The article inquires on the best way to teach. It discusses the problems of research on teaching, the use of incorrect level of analysis, incomplete or non-existent description of subjects. It also touches on the failure to randomly assign pupils to treatments, confirmation of treatment implementation, failure to test assumptions of statistical techniques, maximizing the risk of type II errors, the incomplete reporting of descriptive data, and temporal and substantive incongruence of actual and proposed outcomes.
