Matched Pairs Design
Participants in each cindition are matched for certain variables.
1 of 50
Oppertunity Sampling
Participants that are available are selected for study.
2 of 50
Random Sampling
Each member of the target population has an equal chance of being selected.
3 of 50
Quota Sampling
the sample reflects the sub-groups that exist in the target population. e.g. if target population has 30% male and 70% female then the study should have these percentages.

Volunteer Sampling
Participants may respond to an advert and volunteer to participate in the study.

Operationalise
Way of measuring the variables.

Experimental/Alternative Hypothesis
a trstable prediction/statement about the direction the results will go in.
7 of 50
Repeated Measures Design
Same participants are used in each experimental condition.
8 of 50
Independant Design
Where different participants are allocated in each experimental condition.

Subject Expectations
Participants may behave in a way that they thinik the researcher wants them to behave.
