This medication helps here, that therapy there...empirical values are often passed on from patient to patient. Just because e.g. a drug is effective for ten patients, it holds by no means generality. In empirical research methodology, every hypothesis must be supported by studies: Which methods of measurements are there? Which scales are used for measurement? What is the standard error of measurement and how can a test gain maximum validity? Once the process of a scientific experiment is understood, you will be ideally prepared for tripping hazards during your exams and your perhaps upcoming doctoral thesis.
