Sampling techniques

HideShow resource information
  • Studies in psychology rarely involve more than 100 participants
  • Researchers want their findings to apply to a much larger group
  • The participants selected for a study form a sample taken from a larger population which consists of all members of the group of which the sample has been taken from

Researchers aim to get a sample that is representative of the target population. Every person should be proportionately represented.
