- Face Validity
- Field Experiment
- a When a researcher manipulates one or more independent variables in a natural setting in order to determine the effect on behavior.
- b people know what they are being asked about. This can lead to subject bias though
- c Occurs when people react to the fact that they are being observed.
- d can be affected by the experience of being observed can be affected by biases but biasis can be minimized by training observers or keeping them blind to participants information and also getting participants habituated to being observed
- e identification of units of behavior according to specific criteria that are related to the goals of the study
5 Multiple choice questions
- 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.
- A research design in which investigators compare groups of subjects of differing age who are observed at a single point in time.
- the degree to which two or more independent observers agree
- 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"
- as the value of one measure increases the value of another decreases
5 True/False questions
Standard Error → measures how accurate the sample mean is of the population mean. The equation is SE+ SD/ square root of n
data reduction → the process of summerizing data
Type II error → Is a false positive your data says their is something going on in the populations that isnt
Criterion validity → We want to see that our data is related to actual experience and actual validity
convergent validity → the extent to which observations may be generalized (depends on how behavior is sampled)
