Jaime Veino Psych 240 lab Research study 1. The three variables that are being compared are number of hours per week that the mother worked during child’s first three years, number of weeks employed during child’s first 3 years, and the child’s behavioral problems at age 3 to 4. These will be related because the amount of time a mother spends with her child affects how the child behaves. 2. Dependent variable (Criterion)- child’s behavior age 3 to 4 Independent variables (Predictors)-number of hours mother worked during child’s first three years and number of weeks employed during child’s first three years. 3. Null Hypothesis: The more hours per week and the more weeks the mother worked during the child’s first three years does not affect the child’s behavioral problems at age 3 to 4. Alternative Hypothesis: The more hours per week and the more weeks the mother worked during the child’s first three years will increase the child’s behavioral problems. 4.
