1.Case study Qualitative. Examine 1 individual thoroughly.
2.Experimental Quantitative. Cause & effect.
Things you need for experimental: 1. Random assignment- everyone has = opportunity to get assigned to groups. 2. At least 2 groups- controlled & experimental. Placebo effect. Hawthorne effect. Quazi-experimental- compares 2 groups but w/o random assign. or control.
3.Correlational study Seeing whether or not one variable is related to another. Relatedness to two or more variables. Quazi-experimental. Spurious (3rd variable).
Statistics- variance dispersion of scores. Stats based on shared variance. Correlation based on strength of relation (both pointing up or down= positive) (going opposite=negative).
Statistic significance Not random chance, actually happened. r= .36, p< .05
Regression Looking at many correlations at once. Also, differences between groups.
t-tests Differences in average scores between two groups.
