Hypothesis l.jpg
Hypothesis

  • Scientific method

  • Hypothesis formulation

=


Operationalization l.jpg
Operationalization

  • Operationalization: to put an experiment into a form that allows researchers to test the hypothesis

  • Independent variable: the variable that researchers control

  • Dependent variable: the variable that researchers are studying

  • What other questions should the researchers ask?

Independent variable

Dependent variable


Operationalization continued l.jpg
Operationalization (continued)

  • Confounding variables

  • Reliability

  • Validity

SCARY

= ?

What makes a movie scary?

How can we tell if a child has had a nightmare?

What else might cause nightmares?


Experimenting recording results conclusion l.jpg

Conducting the experiment

Experimenting, Recording Results, Conclusion

Recording the results

Drawing conclusions

does cause


Correlation vs causation l.jpg
Correlation vs. Causation

Correlation versus causation: just because two things are related doesn’t mean one thing caused the other

Just because

happened

happened and then

doesn’t necessarily mean that

caused
