5 Matching questions

  1. Pearsons R range
  2. successive independent samples
  3. Event Sampling
  4. Ordinal
  5. Naturalistic Observation
  1. a super long term cross sectional design that used used to trace differences in the population over time when given the same survey
  2. b sames as cohens d except anything over 0.5 is large
  3. c 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
  4. d rank-order stimuli on a single dimension. i.e winning the silver medal vs winning the gold
  5. e Used when researchers are interested in events that happen infrequently. Could be natural disaster, holiday plays in school ect.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the graph is narrow, tall and skinny
  2. Occurs when people react to the fact that they are being observed.
  3. mail surveys, personal interviews, telephone interviews, and internet surveys
  4. researchers examine evidence of past behavior using physical traces or archival records
  5. examining behavior while it occurs (2 kinds with intervention and without intervention)

5 True/False questions

  1. Situation Sampling1. 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


  2. Correlational ResearchProvides the basis for making predictions.


  3. response biaswhen researchers biases determine which behaviors they choose to observe and when observers expectations about behavior lead to systematic errors in identifying and recording behavior.


  4. Event Sampling (food example)observing people eat for a 10 minute period


  5. ReliabilityRefers to the truthfulness of the measure. Is it measuring what it is intended to measure?
