Clues

  • A hypothesis that states that results are not due to chance and that they are significant in terms of supporting the idea being investigated. (8, 10)
  • All values in a set of data are added together and divided by the number of values. (10, 4)
  • Alternating the order at which participants perform in different conditions of an experiment. (16)
  • Divides target population into groups. There are people in sample from each group in same proportions as population. (10, 8)
  • Everyone in the entire target population has an equal chance of being selected (6, 8)
  • Gathers data in numerical form and is concerned with making 'scientific' measurements. Analysis uses a barrage of inferential statistical tests. (12, 4)
  • Keeping a tally chart of each time a type of behaviour occurs. (5, 8)
  • Neither the participants or researchers know what condition the participants are in. (6, 5, 6)
  • Participants don't know which control/design they are in. (6, 5, 6)
  • Participants volunteer themselves. (4, 8, 6)
