What is prediction and how we predict?

Prediction means a statement what will happen in the future. In order to make predictions, readers need to explain what they believe will happen in the future.

It can be done at the beginning of the text or book throughout the reading. In other words, predictions provide basic details about the text or book that you are going to read. 

Why should we predict?

Predictions allow us to think ahead before we begin reading. It gets us thinking about the ideas that may occur throughout the text and also create our own. In doing this it makes the reader more engaged.

How do we predict?

  1. Look at the little.
  2. Look at the image.
  3. Think about what you have read already.
  4. Make your prediction.
  5. Identify key ideas or major events that have already occurred.
  6. Decide what you think will happen, based on what has already occurred on the book.

How to Make a Prediction?

Making prediction means that you are going to try and guess what happens next while reading.

We make predictions using the information we already know and the information from the text or story.

You can even make predictions about what might happen to the character once the story has ended.

What you already know about a subject is called your background knowledge.

How to Predict throughout the text Or book?

  1. Think about what you have read previously.
  2. Think about who has the main character and what have been the main events.
  3. Think about what may happen next, based on what you already know.

How to check predictions?

Look back and make sure your prediction was accurate. If it’s not accurate and read again and check prediction. You can even discuss with a friend.

Types Of Prediction :

Predictions are divided into three types :

Inductive Prediction :

An inductive prediction is one where the conclusion does not compulsory used from the premises, but in some cases, it follows from the premises. In other words, it is true that the premises could be true and the end might be false. However, this is unlikely to be the case.

Deductive Prediction :

Deductive prediction is one where the conclusion must be followed from the premises. In other words, deductive prediction, it is not possible for the premises to be true and the end false.

Abductive Prediction :

There is a third type of prediction, which is different from the above two types of prediction. This type of predictions will try to say something about the future. But unlikely the first one it is not generated by projecting past occurrences on to the future.

What is Statistics Prediction?

Statistics prediction is the main rule that concerns the collect, organize, display, analysing, and presentation of data. In applying statistics prediction to a social problem, it is conventional to start with a population model to be studied.

Examples Of Predictions:

  • When we hear thunder and see lightning. We often predict they will be followed by rain.
  • We also might predict the relationship the day of the work and the expected crowd at the movie theatre.
  • We might predict that a bright elementary school student will do well in high school.

What are the differences between Hypothesis And Prediction?

A) The hypothesis will lead to explaining why something happened.

Predictions will lead to explaining what might happen according to the present observation.

B) A hypothesis can be tested.

Prediction can’t be tested until it really happens.

C) The hypothesis is directly related to statistics.

Predictions only bring forth probabilities.

D) The hypothesis will result in providing answers to a phenomenal, leading to theory.

Predictions will result in providing assumptions for the future.

E) The hypothesis will go back to the beginning or causes of the occurrence.

Prediction goes forth to the future.
