  1. a participants describe the way the feel they "should" respond
  2. b when the procedures used to sample a population lead to overrepresentation or underrepresentation of some segments of the population
  3. c Refers to researchers choosing time intervals for making observations either sytematically or randomly
  4. d as this increases the chance of getting type II error decrease, is affected by sample size .05 cut off for type II error being true
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. "Internal Consistency Reliability", Scores range from 0-1, 0.7 is typically acceptable, What happens if it is too low or high?
