Replication an experiment is re done to verify

This preview shows page 4 - 5 out of 5 pages.

Replication: An experiment is re-done to verify results; the more consistent, the more trustworthy a study is. Cross-Sectional Study: Collecting data at ONE point in time. *Longitudinal Study*: Conducting data at MORE than one point in time. Ex. Measure stress at one month, than two months, than a year. This is BETTER for ensuring the causal relationship of IV and DV But, this is hard to do (ppl move) and it can be lengthy/$$ Statistical Reasoning Descriptive Statistics Mean, median mode=measures of central tendency Summarizes how the group performed, as a whole Interpretive Statistics Statistical Significance: how RELIABLE is the data?

    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.
