- Physical Traces
- discriminant validity
- Pearson's R
- test-retest reliability
- a Test in which participants receive the same score when tested at different times it means it is consistent
- b is a zero to 1 scale that measures correlation it can be positive or negative
- c examines the extent to which scores on the measure are not related to scores that measure some other unrelated construct
- d part of indirect observation. Looking at recycling in recycling bin for example or things highlighted in a textbook or if its a "product" it could be cave paintings, MTV, Star Wars Toys
- e Refers to the truthfulness of the measure. Is it measuring what it is intended to measure?
5 Multiple choice questions
- the cues in a situation that participants are looking for to try and figure out what the study is about.
- 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
- A relationship that can be described by a third variable
- arises when records are incomplete or missing researchers must take this into account. i.e some people dont have photos from their divorce era or their "fat years"
- The hypothesis that states there is no difference between two or more sets of data. Stating opposite of what you expect to find
5 True/False questions
convergent validity → The extent to which there is evidence that a test measures a particular hypothetical construct.
observer drift → when researchers biases determine which behaviors they choose to observe and when observers expectations about behavior lead to systematic errors in identifying and recording behavior.
p-value → for statistical significance. Low p-value most likely means type II error
Nominal → sort stimuli into discrete categories. i.e "brown eyed person or blue eyed person"
subject sampling → Observe 1 out of every 5 ppl in a given cafeteria or restuarant
