Resource summary

Value Judgements, Positive and Normative Statements
1 POSITIVE STATEMENT= a statement that can be tested against real-world data
1.1 (it can be checked against evidence to see whether it is true or false)
1.2 e.g. 'the moon is made of green cheese', this is completely false but it can be checked so it is a POSITIVE STATEMENT
2 NORMATIVE STATEMENT= opinions that require value judgements to be made
2.1 (it is a personal opinion that others may disagree to, it cannot be tested to see if it's true or false)
2.2 e.g. 'pollution is the most serious economic problem', this is subjective as it's someone's opinion so it's a NORMATIVE STATEMENT
3 VALUE JUDGEMENT= statements or opinions expressed that are not testable or cannot be verified and depend very much on the views of the individual and the values they hold
3.1 (opinions of an individual which may not be shared by everyone)
3.2 e.g. 'Britain should adopt the Euro', different people would agree and disagree so it's a VALUE JUDGEMENT
