- Event Sampling
- Criterion validity
- Time sampling (food example)
- Observer bias
- a 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.
- b Refers to the truthfulness of the measure. Is it measuring what it is intended to measure?

5 True/False questions
Cross Sectional Design → A research design in which investigators compare groups of subjects of differing age who are observed at a single point in time.
Content analysis → The extent to which there is evidence that a test measures a particular hypothetical construct.
negatively skewed → same as skewed to the left (it looks right)
Face Validity → Refers to the truthfulness of the measure. Is it measuring what it is intended to measure?
Narrative records → audio or video records of behavior
