### Final Exam Study - Experiments, Factorial Designs, and Sampling

What would your hypothesis look like if you had an experiment? It would involve a single independent variable where the goal of the experiment would be to compare the observations for the different levels of the independent variable.
What is an interaction effect? Tests the effect of one independent variable for each level of another independent variable to determine how the IVs interact to effect the dependent variable. Compares the differences of the levels of one IV across the levels of another IV.
What is a simple random sample technique? Each member of the population has an equal probability of being selected using random sampling. E.g. student are chosen randomly from list of all student at a university
Pros of simple-random sample techniques Reduces sampling error by choosing from all members of the population to best represent the population
Cons of simple-random sample techniques Difficult to ensure that each member of a large population can be chosen in a sample
What is a cluster sampling technique? Clusters of individuals are identified and then a subset of clusters is randomly chosen to sample from.
Example of a cluster sampling technique Doctors who work at hospitals are chosen for a sample by identifying all hospitals in different areas of the US and then randomly choosing 10 hospitals in each area of the US to sample from
Pros of cluster sampling Makes it easier to choose members randomly from smaller clusters to better represent the population
Cons of cluster sampling Can ignore segments of the population that aren't in the clusters chosen for the sample
What are stratified random samples? Members of a population are selected such that the proportion of a group in the sample is equal to the proportion of that group in the population using random sampling
Example of a stratified random sample technique Registered voters are randomly selected from lists of democrats and republicans to equal the proportion of registered democrats and republicans in the US
Pros of stratified random samples Reduces bias due to an identified characteristic of the population by equating proportions in the sample and the population for that characteristic to better represent the population
Cons of stratified random samples Similar to simple random - can be difficult to ensure equal probability of being chosen from a large population
What is haphazard/volunteer sampling? Members of a population are chosen based on convenience and on who volunteers
Example of haphazard/volunteer sample Sample is chosen from students who volunteer to complete an extra credit assignment in their psych course.
Pros of haphazard/volunteer sampling Easier to obtain than probability samples
Cons of haphazard/volunteer sampling May not represent the population well due to selection bias because random sampling is not used
What is a quota sampling technique? Members of population are selected such that the proportion of a group in the sample is equal to proportion of that group in population
Example of quota sampling Volunteers are recruited from students in a psychology course such that the gender breakdown in the sample is the same as the gender breakdown of all students at the school
Pros of quota sampling Easier to obtain that probability samples and allows for better representation of a characteristic of the population
Cons of quota sampling may not represent the population well due to selection bias because random sampling is not used

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
