Review


10 review questions

10 Review Questions

  • Name three types of research

    • Quantitative (Deductive)

    • Qualitative (Inductive)

    • Descriptive

  • Name the four categories of research

    • Descriptive

    • Exploratory

    • Explanatory

    • Evaluative

  • Name at least two methods used to collect data

    • Surveys

    • Interviews

    • Participant Observation

  • What are the two types of samples?

    • Non-probability

    • Probability

  • What are the two types of variables found in research?

    • Independent

    • Dependent


Sociological research methods

  • What are the three criteria for determining causation?

    • Correlation (association)

    • Time-Order

    • Non-Spuriousnness

  • What is “correlation” and what two types are there?

    • Positive

    • Negative

  • What are the four levels of measurement?

    • Nominal (categorical)

    • Ordinal

    • Interval

    • Ratio

  • What is the difference between reliability and measurement validity?

  • What are the three types of validity and what are they?

    • Measurement

    • External (cross-population generalizability)

    • Internal (causal)


Identifying variables correlations

Identifying Variables & Correlations

  • As income increases crime decreases

    • I= Level of Income D= Level of crime

    • Negative Correlation

  • The less religious a person is the lower his/her income will be

    • I= Level of religiosity D= Income Level

    • Positive Correlation

  • The more religious a person is the more likely the person is to be a republican

    • I= Level of religiosity D= whether or not one is a republican

    • Can’t measure correlation

  • The faster one drives the greater the risk of getting into an accident

    • I= Driving speed D=The risk of getting into an accident

    • Positive Correlation

  • Athletes will score higher on the history 101 exam than non-athletes

    • I= Whether or not one is an athlete D= History 101 exam score

      • Can’t measure correlation
