Naturalistic Observation

  • observing and recording behavior in naturally occurring situations without trying to manipulate and control the situation.


Your project
Your Project

  • Who shows anger more, males or females?

  • Who shows happiness more, males or females?


Your sample
Your Sample

  • High school students (14 – 18 years old) at Uplift Community High School during their lunch period.

  • Systematic sampling: choose a number and observe every nth person you see.



Your sample1
Your Sample

  • You must observe at least 50 people.


You need to
You need to:

  • Choose a group (no more than 4 people). I suggest picking people with the same lunch period as you.

  • Decide which people you will be observing (e.g. every 3rd person, every 8th person, etc.)


You need to1
You need to:

  • Create a hypothesis about what you think you will see during your observations.


You need to2
You need to:

  • Create operation definitions for “anger” and “happiness”.

  • These need to be SPECIFIC and OBSERVABLE.

  • So, “mad” or “joyful” won’t cut it.


Operational definitions
Operational Definitions

  • Right now, create your personal operational definitions for “anger” and “happiness” INDEPENDENTLY.

  • Now, share out with your group.

  • As a group, create your operational definitions that you will observe.


Collecting your data
Collecting your data:

  • On paper, simply note the gender of the person you are observing.

  • Watch them for one minute. Then note if they show ‘anger’ or ‘happiness’.



Practice
Practice:

  • Watch the following clip and decide whether you see anger or happiness BASED ON YOUR OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS!

Operational Definitions

  • Decide whether you need to change anything in your definitions after trying them out with a video.
