1. An experimenter is examining the effects of stress levels on exam performance in students. In this study, people are placed into one of two stress groups (low stress and high stress).

Here, the age of the students would be considered a(n): a. Independent variable b. Dependent variable c. Confounding variable d. B) C) e. None of the above 2.

Her plan is to go on a gluten-free diet and then see if her mood improves. Over a 1 month period, she successfully avoids gluten and records a diary entry every day. Jennifer’s operational definition of positive mood is the use of positive emotional language (such as the words ‘happy’, ‘excited’, ‘giddy’) in her diary entries. Once the 1 month period is complete, an objective Psychologist analyzes the language in Jennifer’s diaries. The Psychologist informs Jennifer that she uses positive emotional language much more frequently after the treatment than she did before the treatment. Upon hearing this, Jennifer concludes that cutting out gluten improves mood and recommends cutting out gluten to everyone. However, this study should be viewed with caution because of: a. Placebo/expectation effect b. researcher bias c. low sample size d. all of the above e. none of the above 11. You are a statistician studying the salaries of lawyers at a law firm.

One of the major learning objectives of this chapter is to describe
Question One of the major learning objectives of this chapter is to describe the purpose of the descriptive research strategy, explain how it differs from the purpose of other research strategies, and identify this strategy when it is used in a research study.Descriptive research typically involves measuring a variable or set of variables as they exist naturally. Unlike the other research strategies, the descriptive strategy is not concerned with relationships between variables but rather with the description of individual variables. The goal is to describe a single variable or to obtain separate descriptions for each variable when several are involved.Consider the following research results and decide whether each is an example of descriptive research.Texting while driving reduces reaction time to driving emergencies.Descriptive studyNot a descriptive studySeasonal affective disorder (SAD) affects 5% of Americans.Not a descriptive studyDescriptive studyHaving a pet relieves stress.Not a descriptive studyDescriptive studyPeople tend to be happiest on the weekends.Descriptive studyNot a descriptive studyCollege students are “addicted” to portable electronic devices such as cell phones.Descriptive studyNot a descriptive studyStudents ages 8-18 average 7.5 hours of total media use each day.Not a descriptive studyDescriptive study

Question what is the type is quasi-experimental design used in the below study? A research examined if Native American score more on a IQ test if the test was given to them by a Native American as opposed to a White American. The IQ test used was the WISC-R.The WISC-R consists of Verbal and Performance subsets. Children were released from their class two at a time for about 30 minutes per examining session. One was escorted by the White psychometrist to an examining room, and the other was shown to another examination room by the Native American psychometrist. All students were given the Verbal subtest at the first meeting and the Performance subtest at the second meeting. The Verbal test was given on the first meeting (on a Monday to Thursday). Each student was brought back for the other test on the following day at about the same time of day as they had done the first test. At the end of each test the psychometrist scored her own tests.

Question InstructionsSubmit a general description of a patient and his or her issue that you would like to design a treatment plan for. This will be your ‘case study’ that you will continue to use as you work on your Final Project. In addition, be sure to include the theoretical orientation you have chosen to address the issue you described in your case study.This submission is not graded separately from the final project but should be submitted during this module. Use the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric as a reference for structure under “Milestone One.”Your final project is due in Module Seven and will be a capstone demonstration of all that you have learned in the course. Those students who succeed the most on final projects are those who think about and plan for the final project throughout the entire course.For additional details, please refer to the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document.
