Hypothesis A type of testable explanation (model) of natural systems or phenomena, or of evidence from an investigation. A hypothesis can be proposed prior to data collection and has the components of an explanation: an assertion (claim), desired evidence related to the claim, and reasoning that connects the assertion and the evidence. A hypothesis serves the same role as a scientific question in that it guides the collection and interpretation of data that will support the assertion. A hypothesis must be consistent with accepted scientific knowledge, result in predictions that can be tested through further investigations, and be supported (justified) with reasoning (argumentation). For the purpose of these standards, the development of a hypothesis is achieved through the process of question formulation.
