Anthony Ferreira Stroop Test In the Stroop test simulation the first test was to read a list of color names printed in black ink. The second task required subjects to name the color of a series of color patches, and the third task and hardest task required subjects to name the color that various color words were printed in when the words were printed in the wrong color. The test then needs to begin by forming a hypothesis to which an experiment can be developed. The hypothesis, it is easier to name the color of the patches than to name the color of the words, forms an idea that can be easily tested. After the hypothesis is formed an independent and dependent variable must be created. The independent variable in this case is the type of stimuli: color patches versus color words printed in incongruent colors. Because the dependent variable is a variable that is thought to be affected by the manipulation of the independent variable, the dependent variable is the length of time it

Unformatted text preview: takes to name the colors. When going through the tasks of the ten slides with different colors on them. It took myself almost twice as long to correctly state the color of the word when the word itself did not match. Of the control condition(color patches) the average time took me roughly 4.96 seconds with a standard deviation of .95. for the experimental condition(words with incongruent colors) the average time it took me for each slide was 8.34 seconds with a standard deviation of 2.94. The hypothesis stating that it is easier to name the color of the patches than to name the color of the words supported the final experiments results for me. Because the experiment was so small and only tested myself it does not make the hypothesis completely correct. The experiment worked well and the independent variable affected the dependent variable...

    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.
