  1. successive independent samples
  2. Content analysis
  3. nonprobability sampling
  4. Confidence Interval
  5. convergent validity
  1. a The level of certainty that the true score falls within a specific range. The smaller the range the less the certainty. If intervals between two groups do not overlap you can infer differences based on the data
  2. b super long term cross sectional design that used used to trace differences in the population over time when given the same survey
  3. c can be generally defined as any objective coding
  4. d includes convinience sampling and does not guarantee that each element in a population has an equal chance of being represented
  5. e Extent to which scores obtained from one procedure are positively correlated with scores obtained from another procedure that is already accepted

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A relationship that can be described by a third variable
  2. examining behavior while it occurs (2 kinds with intervention and without intervention)
  3. Occurs when some information is selected to be depositeded into archives but other information is not. i.e. Not all activities or events appear in a high school yearbook
  4. Is a false positive your data says their is something going on in the populations that isnt
  5. 1. Enhances external validity
    2. Involves studying behavior in different locations and under different circumstances and situations. By sampling under different circumstances research reduced the chance that their observations will be unique to specific circumstances or conditions

5 True/False questions

  1. response biassystematic difference in people willing to respond to a survey


  2. Selection biassystematic difference in people willing to respond to a survey


  3. Time SamplingUsed when researchers are interested in events that happen infrequently. Could be natural disaster, holiday plays in school ect.


  4. Behaviorcan 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


  5. Field ExperimentWhen a researcher manipulates one or more independent variables in a natural setting in order to determine the effect on behavior.
