  • 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)

  • Gathers information that is not in numerical form such as feelings and emotions. (11, 4)
  • 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)
