Comm. 88 Lecture 14 November 18, 2008 I. Quasi-Experimental Designs A. Time Series Designs 1. Track many observations over time , before and after a manipulation. B. Single-group interrupted time series design 1. O1 O2 O3 O4 X O5 O6 O7 O8 (group 1) 2. Pretests, then manipulation, then posttests a. Improves the “one-group pretest-posttest” b. Example: Crime prevention program Crimes Reported Jan. X Feb. 3. If you do multiple pretests and posttest you will be able to see that the crime prevention program is already going down as the months pass, and the program has no effect on the amount of crime. 4. Advantage to time series: solves some threats to internal validity (testing, maturation). a. You will be able to see a problem and fix it for the next time. b. Variation: take treatment away and then measure again i.e. if the program is actually working in preventing crime then you should close them down and see if crime goes back up.

Example: Media Literacy Program Media Literacy Scores X A B 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 observations b. Variation: give comparison group treatment and keep measuring. Example Study RQ: What are the effects of listening to music (while studying) on learning? IV? DV? Possible experiment: X (music) O1 (test score) group 1 R (no music) O1 (test score) group 2 Type of design? True experiment (you can make a causal claim) What can you conclude? If you find that group one on average score is significantly higher than group 2, you can conclude that music helps. High internal validity but low external validity. Now, what if we want to test for effects of another IV? I. Factorial Design A. Purpose: 1. To examine the effects of two or more IVs simultaneously B. Factors (IVs) 1....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
