Stigler's emphasis is upon how, whilst, and the place the tools of likelihood concept have been constructed for measuring uncertainty in experimental and observational technology, for lowering uncertainty, and as a conceptual framework for quantative reports within the social sciences. He describes with care the clinical context within which the several equipment advanced and identifies the issues (conceptual or mathematical) that retarded the expansion of mathematical information and the conceptual advancements that authorised significant breakthroughs.

When variables are used to explain variation, the school level variables explain less of the school variance than the customary class level variables explain of the class level variance. The school variables that do explain variation do not seem to travel as well as the instructional variables, in terms of explanatory power cross-culturally. It may even be that different school organizational arrangements are necessary in different national cultures to generate effective classroom learning environments which are the same cross-culturally.
