Inferential Group Differences Associative Predictive 

____ analysis is used for data reduction
Used to describe the variables (question responses) in a data matrix (all respondents's answers) 
Descriptive


____ analysis is used to generate conclusions about the population's characteristics based on the sample data

Inferential


____ anaylsis is used to compare the mean of responses of one group to that of another group, such as satisfaction ratings for "heavy" users vs "light users"

Differences


____ analysis determines the strength and direction of relationships between two or more varioables (questions in the survey)

Associative


___ analysis allows on to make forcasts of future events

Predictive

____ are not central tendency values; extreme scores in a data set. These only affect the ____

Outliers
Mean 

Disperson is measures of ___: (3)

variability
1. Range  Max and Min in a set of numbers 2. SD  degree of variation 3. Frequency  # of occurances of each # in a set

As we report our hypothesis testing results, we report ___ of our hypothesis being ___

probabilities
correct 

___ ___ is the degree to which the conclusions in your study would hold for other persons in other places and at other times

external validity


___ hypothesis is the possibility that an observed effect is genuine and the ___ hypothesis is the rival possibility that it has resulted from random chance.

Type ___ error: mistakenly accepting hypothesis when you shouldn't
Solution? 
Type 1 error
Sol = Set p value low enough 

Type __ error: mistakenly accepting null hypothesis when you shouldn't
Solution? 
Type 2 error

Statistics allow us to ___ uncertainty

Quantify


___ ___ is a systematic and objective approach to determine "approximate truths"

Advanced Ststistics


___ ___ is a set of procedures in which the sample size and sample statistic is used to make an estimate of the corresponding population parameter.
