5 Matching Questions
- successive independent samples
- Cronbach's alpha
- Structured observation
- Effect size
- discriminant validity
- a Often an observer intervenes to exert control or setup a situation
- b measured by "d"are important because they help determine if an effect is meaningful, they make it possible to compare data across studies, they are necessary in power studies to detect a particular effect
- c super long term cross sectional design that used used to trace differences in the population over time when given the same survey
- d "Internal Consistency Reliability", Scores range from 0-1, 0.7 is typically acceptable, What happens if it is too low or high?
- e examines the extent to which scores on the measure are not related to scores that measure some other unrelated construct
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- includes convinience sampling and does not guarantee that each element in a population has an equal chance of being represented
- Used when researchers are interested in events that happen infrequently. Could be natural disaster, holiday plays in school ect.
- 1. Enhances external validity
2. Involves studying behavior in different locations and under different circumstances and situations. By sampling under different circumstances research reduced the chance that their observations will be unique to specific circumstances or conditions
- the set of all cases of interest. i.e if you are looking for student behavior at smu the population is all the smu students
- direct observation of behavior without any any attempt by the observer to intervene. This kind of observation helps add external validity to labratory findings. Good for when ethical and moral considerations prevent experimental control
5 True/False Questions
Nominal → identification of units of behavior according to specific criteria that are related to the goals of the study
convieninece sampling → selected respondents primarily because of their availability and willingness to respond
demand characteristics → the cues in a situation that participants are looking for to try and figure out what the study is about.
Ordinal → sort stimuli into discrete categories. i.e "brown eyed person or blue eyed person"
Correlational Research → Provides the basis for making predictions.
