case study
A C A C H, A I D L A A S I
Also called a case history, an in depth look at a single individual
Correlation research
R T E T R B V, W P I T E W A H T V C T
Reaserch that examines the relationships between variables, whose purpose is to examine whether and how two variables change together.
Third variable problem
T C W A V T H N B M A F T R B T O V
The circumstance where a variable that has not been measured accounts for the relationship between two other variables
Longitudinal Design
A S K O S O, U B C R, T I O M O V O I I M W O T.
A special kind of systematic observation, used by correlation researchers, that involves obtaining measures of variables of interest in multiple waves over time
Experiment
A C R P I W T R M O O M V T A B T I S O V
A carefully regulated procedure in which the researcher manipulates one or more variables that are believed to influence some other variable
Random Assignment
R A O P T G B C, T R T L T A E R W B D T P D B G.
Researches' assignment of participants to groups by chance, to reduce the likelihood that an experiment's results will be due to preexisting differences between groups
Confederate
A P W I G A R T P I S S T T S C C B M
A person who is given a role to play in a study so that the social context can be manipulated
Dependent Variable
t o t f t c c i a e i r t c i t i v
The outcome--the factor that can change in an experiment in response to changes in the independent variable
Control Group
t p i a e w a a m l t e g a p a w a t i e w l t e g e f a m f, t i v
The participants in an experiment who are as much like the experimental group as possible and who are treated in every way like the experimental group except for a manipulated factor, the independent variable
Validity
t s o t c t a r d f a e
The soundness of the conclusions that researcher draws from an experiment
external validity
t d t w a e m d a r t r w i i i s t a
the degree to which an experimental design actually reflects the real-world issues it is supposed to address
Independent variable
a m e f, t v t t e c t s w i e a
A manipulated experimental factor, the variable that the experimenter changes to see what ts effects are
experimental group
t p i a e w r t d o o t u s-- t i, t w a e t t c t t i v r
The participants in an experiment who receive the drug or other treatment under study--that is, those who are exposed to the change that the independent variable represents
Internal validity
t d t w c i t d v a d t t m o t i v
The degree to which changes in the dependent variable are due to the manipulation of the independent variable
Demand Characteristics
a a o a s t c t t p h t e w t t b
any aspects of a study that communicate to the participants how the experimenter wants them to behave
experimenter bias
t i o t e's e o t o o r
The influence of the experimenter's expectations on the outcome of research
placebo effect
t s w p' e, r t t e t, p a e m o
The situation where participants', expectations, rather than the experimental treatment, produce an experimental outcome
Double-blind experiment
a e d i w n t e n t p a a o w p a i t e g a w a i t c g u t r a c
An experimental design in which neither the experimenter nor the participants are aware of which participants are in the experimental group and which are in the control group until the results are calculated
Research participant bias
i a e, t i o p' e, a o t t a h t s b, o t b
In an experiment, the influence of participants' expectations, and of their thoughts about how they should behave, on their behavior.
Placebo
i a d s, a h s t h n p e, g t p i a c g s t t a t i t t e g e f t a a
In a drug study, a harmless substance that has no physiological effect, given to participants in a control group so that they are treated identically to the experimental group except for the active agent.
