Frequency distribution:function showing the number of instances in which a variable takes each of its possible values.Listwise deletion: is a method for handling missing data. In this method, an entire record is excluded from analysis if any single value is missing.Mean:average valueMedian: midpoint in a distribution Mode:most frequent valueMissing data: occur when no data value is stored for the variable in an observationRegression: a measure of the relation between the mean value of one variable (e.g., output) and corresponding values of other variablesNull hypothesis:the hypothesis that there is no significant difference between specified populations, any observed difference being due to sampling or experimental errorOutliers:the point on a histogram Range: the area of variation between upper and lower limits on a particular scaleStandard deviation: a quantity calculated to indicate the extent of deviation for a group as a whole.Univariate analysis: the simplest form of analyzing data.Wild-code checkingKey Questions1.Why are experiments said to be high in internal validity? What are the unique features of experiments that help us meet the three requirements for establishing a causal relationship?What are the three requirements for establishing a causal relationship?a.Experiments are said to have high internal validity because in experiments a manipulatedvariable is followed by a measured variable and that causes it to have high internal validityb.Association, direction of influence, and nonspuriousness

    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.
