Manipulated

7 of 92

What is a dependent variable?

Measured

8 of 92

What is an extraneous variable?

May have an impact on our other variables

9 of 92

What three criteria's does an Experiment have to satisfy in order for it to be a TRUE EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN?

- Experimental manipulation - Standardisation of procedures - Random allocation of participants to IV conditions

10 of 92

What is random allocaiton?

Each possible outcome has an equal chance of being picked

11 of 92

One tailed

13 of 92

What is a non-directional hypothesis also known as?

Two-tailed test

14 of 92

No direction of the relationship or difference is predicted

16 of 92

What is 0.05? (1 in 20 chance)

The probability that something will happen by chance - statistically significatn

17 of 92

If we raised the probability to 0.1 what type of error would we find?

Type 1 Error - Find effects that are not there

18 of 92

If we lowered the level to 0.01 what type of error would we find?

Type 2 Error - We would miss genuine effects

19 of 92

What does it mean if the bars DO NOT overlap in error bars?

A real difference between the population means

20 of 92

What does it mean if the bars DO overlap in error bars?

Suggest no real difference between the population means

21 of 92

What is a WITHIN PARTICIPANT DESIGN?

If participants take part in more than one condition (related sample)

22 of 92

What is a BETWEEN PARTICIPANTS DESIGN?

If participants only take place in one condition (Independent samples)

23 of 92

What is a MIXED DESIGN?

A combination of within and between factors - More than 1 IV is needed

24 of 92

What are the 2 advantages of WITHIN PPT DESIGN?

- Fewer ppts required - greater control over confounding variables e.g. individual differences

25 of 92

What are the 2 advantages of BETWEEN PPT design?

Removes the chance of practice or fatigue effects - Harder for ppts to guess the purpose of the study

26 of 92

What are the 2 disadvantages of WITHIN PPT DESIGN?

Increased chance of practice or fatigure - incerased chance of ppt guessing the study = demand characteristics

27 of 92

What are the 2 disadvantages of BETWEEN PPT DESIGN?

More ppts required - Not much control over confounding variables - individual differences

28 of 92

What do T-test show?

If there is a significant difference between the means of 2 conditions

29 of 92

What is the independent (unrelated) t-test?

Calculates whether the mean scores from 2 different groups are significantly different

30 of 92

When does independent t-test work best?

When score is normally distributed

31 of 92

What does the independent t-test use?

Means from two different samples of ppts

32 of 92

When do you NOT use an unrelated T-test?

When you have 3 or more groups of ppt

33 of 92

What test should you use

ANOVA

34 of 92

When do you use a RELATED t-test

If you have 2 sets of scores from one group of ppts

35 of 92

What is a paired t-test?

Paired

36 of 92

What is the formula for T-test

Difference between group means (M1-M2) / Variability of groups (Measure of spread within groups) - See sheet

37 of 92

The higher the T- value....

The bigger the difference - less likely to accept null hypothesis

38 of 92

What does the T- value tell us?

About the size of the difference (magnitude)

39 of 92

What is the issue with selecting a sample from a population?

We can't be certain how representative it is of the population

40 of 92

Why is this a disadvantage?

We don't use all members of the population therefore isn't entirely accurate

41 of 92

What is sampling errors?

The degree to which the population parameter differs from the sample statistics

42 of 92

What does a larger sample mean?

Smaller sampling error

43 of 92

What does a smaller sample mean?

Larger sampling error

44 of 92

What is the null hypothesis for a t-test?

No significant difference between two means

45 of 92

If the population means are the same what is the sampling distribution

Zero

46 of 92

If there is no difference between our means what would we expect the t-value to be?

Closer to the middle region of the sampling distribution

47 of 92

What do t-tests help us calculate?

How far from zero the difference between the two obtained means is

48 of 92

The higher the t-value

The more likely it is that any difference between the group means is not the result of a sampling error

49 of 92

What is the degrees of freedom in an Independent t-test?

n-1 for both groups

50 of 92

What does a related t-test test?

Whether one mean is significantly different from another

51 of 92

What are the two sources of variation?

Variation due to the difference between the means (IV) and Variation due to uncontrolled factors (Error Variance)

52 of 92

How can we reduce Error variance?

By measuring the same thing twice as individual differences are removed

53 of 92

When do you use related t-test?

Single group of ppts that are measured twice or are matched into pairs

54 of 92

When don't you use related t-test?

When you have two sets of scores from a single group of participants on different measures

55 of 92

Give an example

If you took extraversion and intelligence

56 of 92

What is a One-Way ANOVA?

An extention of the t-test

57 of 92

When is a One-Way ANOVA used?

When we have three or more groups of participant (Still 1 IV and 1 DV)

58 of 92

How many levels does the IV have?

2 (groups of participants)

59 of 92

What does an ANOVA do?

Comapres the between group variance with the within groups variance

60 of 92

What is the F-ratio

Between groups variance (variance due to IV) / Within groups variance (Error variance)

61 of 92

Within groups...

Variance is minimal

62 of 92

Between groups...

Variance is larger

63 of 92

The larger the between groups variance in relation to the within groups variance...

The larger the F ratio

64 of 92

What does it mean if the F ratio is small?

The within-groups variance is larger than between groups

65 of 92

What does it mean if the F ratio is large?

The within-groups variance is smaller than between groups

66 of 92

What does the null hypothesis state?

That there is no difference among the means (between groups)

67 of 92

What will the F value be if the null hypothesis is true?

1

68 of 92

If the between groups variance is larger than the within groups variance what does this mean?

The IV has an effect therefore the ratio will be greater than 1

69 of 92

What is the significance level?

0.05

70 of 92

What is a Type 1 error?

1 in 0

71 of 92

What happens if you increase the number of tests on the same data?

The chance of finding a significant result by chance is increased

72 of 92

When can't you use a one way anova?

When there is more than 1 IV

73 of 92

What ANOVA do you use instead?

A factorial ANOVA

74 of 92

IVS = Factors

Conditions = LEVELS

75 of 92

What are the four sources of variance

1. Main effect of factor 1 2. Main effect of factor 2 3. The interaction between Factor 1 and Factor 2 4. Error variance

76 of 92

What is the main effect of factor 1/2?

The effect that one factor has on the DV, irrespective of the other factor

77 of 92

What is the interaction between factor 1 and 2

The ways in which factor 1 interacts with factor 2 - behaves differently

78 of 92

What are the three significant test?

3 Hypothesis = 2 main effects and 1 interaction

79 of 92

How does two way anova interpretation begin?

With examination of the interaction

80 of 92

ANOVA terminology

Check revision sheet

81 of 92

What does the number of numbers show?

The number of factors (IVs)

82 of 92

What do the numbers themselves represent?

The levels in each of the factors

83 of 92

When is anova USED?

When we want to analyse all the possible sources of variance in a study

84 of 92

Parallel line in a graph shows

No interactio

85 of 92

No parallel lines on a graph

Possible interaction

86 of 92

Lines cross on a group

Interection

87 of 92

When is a Post Hoc used?

After insepcting the ANOVA results

88 of 92

What does a Post Hoc do?

Compare every mean with every other mean

89 of 92

What does every significant outcome mean?

The means are different and tells us where the differences in the ANOVA actually are

90 of 92

When do you perform a post hoc

If results of your ANOVA were significant and if you have more than 2 levels of factors
