- Which of the following is NOT one of Cook and Campbell (1979) four big validities?
- If the alpha level is set at .01, this implies:
- In general, the ____________ the expected effect, the ________________ the required sample size.
- If a researcher concluded that his new protocol improved employee morale when in fact it did not, what can we say about his conclusion?
- If a researcher concluded that his new protocol had no effect on employee morale when in fact it improved morale, what can we say about his conclusion?
- Which of the following statements is true if when using null hypothesis testing, our p value (in the “sig” column of SPSS output) is 0.069?
- If power is 90%, this implies that you have:
- If power is set to .80, this implies:
- If you are unsure of what effect size to use when calculating the sample size, what is considered standard in the eld (per your assigned readings / presentations this week)?
- Using Cohen’s conventions, an effect size of .50 is interpreted as:
- Which of the following should begin on a new page?
- Which of the following statements is true if when using null hypothesis testing, our p value (in the “sig” column of SPSS output) is 0.051?
- Which of the following statements is true if when using null hypothesis testing, our p value (in the “sig” column of SPSS output) is 0.048?
- What is the current suggested word count range for an abstract?
- If a researcher’s statistical test supports the conclusion that their manipulation improved worker morale, what is the likelihood the researcher made the wrong decision if alpha is set to .01?
- Which of the following can best help a researcher determine if a statistically significant result is clinically meaningful?
- False report probabilities are rather large in research papers published in our eld. Authors such as Cohen (1962) and Szucs and Loannidis (2017) argue that low power in such studies is primarily due to what?
- If a researcher’s statistical test supports the conclusion that their manipulation did not improve worker morale, what is the likelihood the researcher made the wrong decision if power is set to 0.70?
