5 Matching questions
- Effect size
- demand characteristics
- indirect observation
- probability sampling
- a specify the difference between stimuli on a given dimension.
- b 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
- c researchers examine evidence of past behavior using physical traces or archival records
- d the cues in a situation that participants are looking for to try and figure out what the study is about.
- e all people in the population have an equal chace through random selection
5 Multiple choice questions
- the process of summerizing data
- Specify the difference between stimuli on a given dimension and express ratios of scale values. A celcius scale becuse 0 degrees celcius does not mean no temperature or weight.
- Refers to the truthfulness of the measure. Is it measuring what it is intended to measure?
- 1) They have to correlate
2) Temporal Precidence has to be established
3) You have to eliminate all alternate explanations
- 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.
5 True/False questions
Event Sampling (food example) → Asking participants to keep food diaries for when they eat
response bias → when the procedures used to sample a population lead to overrepresentation or underrepresentation of some segments of the population
Correlational Research → audio or video records of behavior
discriminant validity → We want to see that our data is related to actual experience and actual validity
Quantitative scales of behaviror → as the value of one measure increases the value of another decreases
