5. What kind of research design did this study use, i.e., descriptive, correlational, or experimental? Explain your answer. I would say Correlative and Experimental. They used a controlled environment to test the correlation between talking on cell phones and the lack of attention. The experiment used a control drive and a simulated drive to see the effects of distracted driving. 6. What can you conclude from looking at Figure 1.1? One can conclude that talking in person while driving had a 100% complexation rate and the subjects were 40% more likely not to complete the simulation while talking on a cell phone while driving. 7. Based on the Research Summary on Distracted Driving, develop your own research question and hypothesis that is related to the topic. This should be something that researchers could study next to learn more about the topic of Distracted Driving. Tips: The research question identifies what the study will focus on and guides the research process. The hypothesis is based on the research question. It is a statement that makes a prediction about the relationship among the variables in the study (you can use If-Then statements). If drivers are talking on a cell phone cannot focus on driving then they are 40% more likely to not be able to complete the task they are performing. Drews et al.’s (2008) study on distracted driving revealed that talking on cell phones reduced the ability of drivers to accomplish a simulated driving task by 40%. I would use the statistical data collected to demonstrate the reduced cognitive ability of distracted drivers.
