So far we have dealt with problems in the verification or falsification of predictions made from the model which are real, in the sense that the questions raised are meanigful and have an answer, even though that answer may be difficult to produce. There are also questions and problems which are unreal, although this has not prevented many psychologists from raising them or from criticizing the model in terms of the putative answers given to these questions.

" (p. ) Baker et al. take up this critical view of the KAE and attempt to demonstrate that it is completely mistaken. "In challenging this current consensus, we argue that (a) first-session KAE is valid; (b) poor retest reliability simply reflects later-session bias; (c) hence, multisession studies should not be used to assess validity without taking this bias into account.
