Example text

It was noted that deductive cogency requires that if ql is set as a passing score, there must be at least one element of U K such that S(ulK,y) is at least as great as ql. Observe, however, that if the passing score is set at levels greater than ql, in cases where the elements of UK carry equal score, deductive cogency will fail. So ql is the maximum level of boldness that is guaranteed not to fail deductive cogency. In this sense condition (4) guarantees the existence of a maximum level of boldness.

If the inquirer adjusts his cognitive goals in order to obtain a rule (like the ratio rejection rule), we may reasonably say that the cognitive goals are subordinated to the specific rule rather than the other way around. Rationalizations of the ratio rejection rule derived from iterated applications of the inductive rejection rule using diverse values of q are no more acceptable than is the rationalization of the ratio rejection rule initially considered. By way of contrast, the stable inductive rejection rule can be rationalized as the product of iterating the inductive rejection rule with fixed index of boldness q.
