    ex. helping behaviors

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. when the correlation is -1.0
  2. one problem with the experimental method - the extent to which we can say the IV is affecting the DV - experiments are high on this
  3. when the correlation is +1.0 (though it can not usually be a perfect correlation)
  4. does a measure asses what its intended to measure?
  5. based on real world data, as well as archival data
