In qualitative research, a BLANK refers to a situation where the observer also participates in the group being studied.
The concept that subgroups are considered because they are homogeneous in attitudes, experiences, etc.
The concept when the initially selected subjects suggest the names of others who would be appropriate for the sample
Snowball or chain sampling
What depends upon neutrality of the degree qualitative research is free of bias.
This research attempts to discover testable and confirm-able theories that explain phenomena, assumes that subject matter of the social and human sciences differ from natural or physical sciences, and seeks to understand human and social behavior from the "insider's" perspective
This research investigates the extent to which variables are related and the direction of the relationship
A BLANK threat may occur when specific events or conditions, other than the experimental treatment, occur in the environment between the first and second measurements and may explain changes in the dependent variable
A BLANK threat occurs when there is differential loss of participants from the comparison groups
In this research, the variation in the interest variable has already occurred in nature
Ex Post Facto
In experimental research, the BLANK group receives no treatment
This design lacks randomization but the researcher employs other strategies to provide some control over extraneous variables
The use of multiple methods of data collection in qualitative research
The consistency of behaviors in qualitative research. Would the data be similar if the study was replicated?
The concept that units are selected because they are considered typical of the phenomenon to be studied.
Typical case sampling
A BLANK threat involves unintentional effects that the researcher him-or herself has on the study
A BLANK threat may occur when changes (biological or psychological) occur within the subjects simply as a function of the passage of time that may explain changed in the dependent variable.
In correlational research, the BLANK describes the strength and direction of the relationship
size of a coefficient of correlation
In experimental research, the BLANK group receives treatment
In which research methodology does the research admit their views and biases?
Once qualitative data have been sorted, the research should reduce the data by coding it into
This design uses randomization or matching and provides maximum control of extraneous variables
This is the extent to which the changes observed in a dependent variable are, in fact, caused by the independent variable(s) in a particular experimental situation rather than by some extraneous factors
This is where two variables have no effect of the other but are related because of a third variable
In qualitative research, BLANK refers to the concept that units are selected because they are special or unusual
Extreme Case Sampling
A BLANK threat occurs when a pretest administered before the experimental treatment affects the subject's performance on a second test, regardless of the treatment.
A qualitative researcher should always establish a(n) BLANK that includes how the study was conducted and the raw data
In this research, the human investigator is the primary instrument for gathering and analyzing data
In correlational research, the direction of the relationship is indicated by?
means of a coefficient of correlation
The first step in analyzing qualitative data is to?
This refers to the concept that units are included that maximize differences on specified characteristics
Maximum variation sampling
This refers to the extent that the results of an experiment can be generalized to different groups, settings, and measuring instruments
A BLANK correlation coefficient indicates a perfect positive relationship between the variables
This describes a situation where subjects know they are in a research study and respond in a manner that is not normal.
A BLANK threat is describes as the well-known tendency for subjects who score extremely high or extremely low on a pretest to score closer to the mean on a post-test, regardless of the treatment
A BLANK threat occurs when participants in one group (typically the experimental group) communicate information about the treatment to subjects in the control group in such a way as to influence the latter's behavior on the dependent variable
In qualitative research, it is acceptable to impose more BLANK on one group than another.
In qualitative research, the term BLANK refers to the possibility the researcher will understand the setting thoroughly, precisely, and accurately
What is a method of establishing dependability in qualitative research?
Conduct study in multiple locations or with multiple groups
Does the researcher's relationship to the participant pose a problem for qualitative research?
Which methods can be an alternative explanation in ex post facto research?
Other independent variables
The concept that every unit is included in the sample
A BLANK threat describes a situation where subjects in the control group exert extra effort that masks the full effect of the treatment in the experimental group
John Henry Effect
A BLANK threat occurs when subjects feel they are receiving less desirable treatment or being neglected
A BLANK threat occurs when there are important differences between the experimental and control groups even before the application of the experimental treatment
True or False. A child may give informed consent to participate in a research study
How do you attempt to control extraneous variables in ex post facto research?
Build them into the design
In ex post facto research the independent variable is called the?
Attribute independent variable
What is a method of establishing credibility in qualitative research?
Consensus (panel of experts)
Referential or interpretive adequacy
In experimental research which groups are used to test two or more levels of treatment?
