How sensational is your research?
This article reports some of the findings from a 20 year study of pundit’s predications. The author argues that a successful pundit is not the pundit who makes the most successful predictions. Instead, the most successful pundit is the most sensational one. What lessons does this have for educational research? Would we rather read the article that makes a grand prediction and solves all of the world’s problems, or the article that recognizes small flaws and makes minor suggestions?
