Table 5 compares each of the 10 TARPA levels with each of the other levels, and in the case of each comparison shows (a) number of confirmations [C] and disconfirmations
[D] for those two levels, where a confirmation is a pattern in which the lower level was passed and the higher level was failed while a disconfirmation
is a pattern in which the higher level was passed and the lower level was failed; (b) a z-score measurement for that pattern; and (c) a p value corresponding to that z score (see Table 5).

The VUI can detect a disconnect between the user's intention and system understanding using recognition-error counts, repeated disconfirmations

Occasionally, participants deferred making a decision on how to react to disconfirmations
by retaining awareness of the evaluation while they accumulated additional information.
Drisko states that I don't discuss the Quine-Duhem thesis that argues that there cannot be absolute disconfirmations
of theory by empirical testing, a position Popper characterizes as "Quine's holistic view of empirical tests; a view which Quine formulates (with reference to Duhem) by asserting that our statements about the external world face the tribunal of sense experience not individually but only as a corporate body" (Popper, 1989, p.
For example, "a positivist organizational researcher who needs to reformulate a set of theoretical propositions, owing to the repeated disconfirmations
of his or her behaviorist predictions in controlled empirical testing, might be able to explain the disconfirmations
by making explicit the (flawed) interpretive understanding presumed in the failed explanation." (1991: 355) Conversely, empirical testing may help the researcher to select from among competing interpretive understandings those explanations deserving additional inquiry.
According to this theory, subjects do look for disconfirmations
of their hypotheses, but only for those that occur when one of their positive tests turns out to be a negative instance of the rule.
He also discusses experimental disconfirmations
of economic onomic principles.
For example, when the given member item was New Jersey and the correct category was coastal states, most positive tests of the salient hypothesis (i.e., states) produce informative disconfirmations
When dealing with purchases at retail establishments, the formation of expectations, disconfirmation
and satisfaction can be understood in three dimensions: satisfaction with the store, satisfaction with the product and satisfaction with the response to any complaints.
Any discrepancy between expectations and the actual experience leads to disconfirmation
