3. Validity--\$100 • The extent to which a researcher can generalize findings to the population • answer

4. Validity--\$200 • The extent to which a researcher can draw a single, unambiguous conclusion from the results • answer

5. Validity --\$300 • A study is said to be _______ when an extraneous variable is allowed to vary along with the independent variable. • answer

6. Validity --\$400 • An ______ variable is a variable that is not being directly studied, but has the potential of changing along with the independent variable. • answer

7. Validity -\$500 • Although tight control over extraneous variables gives you high levels of _____, it may result in low levels of _____. • answer

8. Strategies & Designs--\$100 • The goal of this research strategy is to describe a variable as it exists naturally. • answer

9. Strategies & Designs --\$200 • The goal of this research strategy is to describe the relationship between two variables as they naturally occur in the environment. • answer

10. Strategies & Designs --\$300 • A researcher joins a religious cult in order to observe the behaviors of the members. The researcher is using _____ observation. • answer

11. Strategies & Designs --\$400 • This type of research design can be useful for studying unusual clinical cases such as brain injuries. • answer

12. Strategies & Designs --\$500 • A researcher systematically varies the amount of caffeine in cola (0, 10, and 20 mg) and observes that his participants’ anxiety levels increase as caffeine amount increases. The 0-mg condition is called the __________. • answer

13. Frequency Distributions--\$100 • The simplest frequency distribution consists of these two columns. • answer

14. Frequency Distributions --\$200 • The shape of a _____ distribution is perfectly symmetrical. • answer

15. Frequency Distributions --\$300 • This is the appropriate type of chart (or visual) for discrete data. • answer

16. Frequency Distributions --\$400 • These two types of charts appropriately represent data from continuous variables. • answer

17. Frequency Distributions --\$500 • A mathematical procedure for estimating a value that is located between two known values. • answer

18. Descriptive Stats--\$100 • A statistical measure that determines a single value that accurately describes the typical score of a distribution. • answer

19. Descriptive Stats--\$200 • This measure of central tendency is the score at the 50th percentile. • answer

20. Descriptive Stats --\$300 • This measure of variability measures the average distance between scores and the mean. • answer

21. Descriptive Stats --\$400 • This measures the average of the squared distances from the mean. • answer

22. Descriptive Stats --\$500 • In order to calculate this, take the square root of the population variance. • answer

23. Grab Bag--\$100 • The type of correlation that indicates an inverse relationship between two variables. • answer

24. Grab Bag--\$200 • In statistical formulas, N represents ______________. • answer

25. Grab Bag--\$300 • The only appropriate measure of central tendency for data measured on a nominal scale. • answer

26. Grab Bag--\$400 • Percentile ranks correspond to the values in the ______ column of a frequency distribution • answer
