Negative Evidence: Evidence that Negates?
Our last posting about negative evidence and EE’s QuickLesson 17 drew quite a few shares. That led to an interesting discussion on the page of one of those who shared the posting. At the root of that discussion lay another common confusion: Negative evidence is not a “finding” that NEGATES something else we found.

Negative Evidence vs. Negative Findings

A teaching tool for researchers just came across EE's desk. To paraphrase: The tool asks whether a needed record exists. Then it instructs: If it does not exist, you now have negative evidence.

No. Nope. Non and nyet!
