Presentation Transcript
scientific method 10
Scientific Method: 10
  • This type of research is concerned with gathering knowledge for its own sake, not with solving applied problems

BASIC research

scientific method 20
Scientific Method: 20
  • Non-scientific way of knowing based on what has been believed for a great deal of time

TENACITY

scientific method 30
Scientific Method: 30
  • Assumption of science that states that every effect has a cause

DETERMINISM

scientific method 40
Scientific Method: 40
  • Assumption of science that states that simple explanations are preferred to complex ones, all other things being equal.

PARSIMONY

scientific method 50
Scientific Method: 50
  • Description, prediction, understanding and change/control

GOALS OF SCIENCE

research methods 10
Research Methods: 10
  • Type of research that uses data previously gathered for another purpose.

ARCHIVAL research

research methods 20
Research Methods: 20
  • In-depth study of a single participant, usually someone with unusual characteristics or background

CASE STUDY

research methods 30
Research Methods: 30
  • The only type of research that can show cause and effect relationships

EXPERIMENT

research methods 40
Research Methods: 40
  • Relationship in which one variable decreases as the other variable increases

NEGATIVE CORRELATION

research methods 50
Research Methods: 50
  • Type of study in which the researcher has some control over an independent variable, but cannot randomly assign participants to groups

QUASI-EXPERIMENT

ethics 10
Ethics: 10
  • List of ethical principles derived after World War II in response to Nazi “experiments” on prisoners

NUREMBERG CODE

ethics 20
Ethics: 20
  • Site of the infamous syphilis studies that caused concern over ethics in medical research

TUSKEGEE

ethics 30
Ethics: 30
  • Researcher whose studies of obedience were partly responsible for the APA’s development of its code of ethics

MILGRAM

ethics 40
Ethics: 40
  • Act of informing research participants at the end of the study what the true purpose of the research was, and clearing up any deception that was used

DEBRIEFING

ethics 50
Ethics: 50
  • Ethical principle that states that participants must have enough information to make a good decision about participating in the study of their own free will

INFORMED CONSENT

variables 10
Variables: 10
  • The presumed cause; the variable that is manipulated by the researcher

INDEPENDENT VARIABLE

variables 20
Variables: 20
  • The presumed effect; the variable that is measured by the researcher

DEPENDENT VARIABLE

variables 30
Variables: 30
  • Variable in a correlational study that is similar to the independent variable in an experiment

PREDICTOR VARIABLE

variables 40
Variables: 40
  • Variable in a correlational study that is similar to the dependent variable in an experiment

CRITERION VARIABLE

variables 50
Variables: 50
  • Confounding variable, that varies along with the independent variable

EXTRANEOUS VARIABLE

experiments 20
Experiments: 20
  • Each participant has an equal chance of being selected for the experimental group or the control group

RANDOM ASSIGNMENT

experiments 40
Experiments: 40
  • A statistical test that shows you precisely where the significant differences lie after an ANOVA tells you that significant differences exist somewhere.

POST HOC TEST

experiments 60
Experiments: 60
  • An experimental design which involves manipulating the presence of a pretest as well as the presence of a treatment

SOLOMON 4-GROUPS DESIGN

experiments 80
Experiments: 80
  • A quasi-experimental design involving multiple pretests and multiple post-tests

INTERRUPTED TIME SERIES

experiments 100
Experiments: 100
  • Type of external validity concerned with the ability to generalize from one time period to another

TEMPORAL GENERALIZATION

statistics 20
Statistics: 20
  • Type of statistical test that looks for differences among 2 or more groups with one or more independent variables

ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE (ANOVA)

statistics 40
Statistics: 40
  • Type of statistical test that looks for differences between only two experimental conditions

T-TEST

statistics 60
Statistics: 60
  • Type of measurement that varies qualitatively, in categories; for example, male/female; guilty/not guilty

NOMINAL

statistics 80
Statistics: 80
  • The most frequently occurring score in a distribution

MODE

statistics 100
Statistics: 100
  • Error in which you reject the null hypothesis, but in fact there was nothing more than chance operating

TYPE I ERROR

threats 20
Threats: 20
  • Something that happens at the same time that your treatment is put into effect

HISTORY

threats 40
Threats: 40
  • Problem that occurs when participants grow older and their behavior changes because of their age rather than the treatment

MATURATION

threats 60
Threats: 60
  • Problem when participants are measured multiple times, and this multiple measurement affects behavior

TESTING

threats 80
Threats: 80
  • Problem that occurs when participants drop out of different conditions at different rates

MORTALITY

threats 100
Threats: 100
  • Problem that occurs when very low (or high) pretest scores naturally migrate toward the center of the distribution on the next testing

REGRESSION TOWARD THE MEAN

odd ends 20
Odd & Ends: 20
  • Type of logic that moves from specific to general

INDUCTIVE

odds ends 40
Odds & Ends: 40
  • Reactivity effect, that occurs when participants change their behavior because they are being watched.

HAWTHORNE EFFECT

odds ends 60
Odds & Ends: 60
  • Rearranging the order of treatments in a repeated measures design to avoid order effects

COUNTERBALANCING

odds ends 80
Odds & Ends: 80
  • Every person in the population has an equal chance of being in the sample
