A characteristic that distinguishes experimental design from other research designs is ______:
The quasi-experimental research design, on the continuum of robustness is usually at one end of the continuum with the correlational design at the opposite end.
When creating groups, a researcher can feel more confident about how equivalent they are based on ___________________.
A quasi-experimental research design may be used when:
The true-experimental design is considered the gold standard in scientific research
There is a chance that a researcher can create two equal groups.
All of the following are necessary characteristics of the true experimental design except ________________.
A two-group experimental design which has random selection, random assignment, or a mixture of both and the dependent variable is measured in each group, after the independent variable was manipulated. Then the DV measures for each group are compared. This group comparison research design is called a ______________________.
Internal validity relates to ________________.
A design in which participants are measured on a trait they already possess and assigned to categories based on that trait, rather than manipulating the independent variable is the ______________.
Research designs that are group comparisons may include:
In a single case design research study:
According to Jackson, one of the benefits of using more than one group, is that the use of multiple groups allows for the addition of a placebo group.
Confounding variables are:
The nonequivalent control group design involves a group comparison where the control group is equivalent to the research group.
In the Knight and Tetrault study guide, the authors discuss Creswell’s recommendations about which items should be included in the methods section of a research proposal. These include:
An ANOVA is:
All of the following are not quasi experimental research designs, except for:
A test that is designed to determine how well an observed frequency distribution of two nominal variables fits an expected pattern of frequencies is called the _____________.
Since quasi-experimental research is on the continuum of robustness between true experimental design and correlational research:
A design in which participants are not randomly assigned but there is an independent variable being manipulated and a dependent variable being measured is a _______________________.
Examples of quasi-experimental designs include ___________________.
A research design often used in the behavioral sciences, especially counseling is known as the:
The post facto design can speak to the cause and effect of a relationship.
An experimental design which has random selection, random assignment, or a mixture of both and the dependent variable is measured before and after the independent variable was manipulated, and then the pre-rest and post test scores are compared, is called a ______________________.
