The objective of this assignment is for students to correctly identify the aspects of research methods.Read the following example of a research study: A social psychologist is interested in investigating perceptions of individuals who have tattoos. The researcher expects to find that individuals who have a tattoo will be perceived as less educated than those who do not. For the sake of convenience, the researcher uses four Intro. to Psychology classes as the sample (each class contained 30 students, half males and half females). A male and a female are used in the experiment. Both have one tattoo on their right bicep. The female has a tattoo of a unicorn and the male has a tattoo of a devil. To control for gender: one class sees the male with the tattoo showing, one sees the male without the tattoo showing, one sees the female with the tattoo showing, one sees the female without the tattoo showing. Each class rates the individual on the level of education completed. After performing the appropriate statistical analyses it was found that the male with the tattoo showing was perceived to be significantly less educated than the other three individuals. Answer the following questions based on the reading: 1) Is THIS an example of an experiment or a correlation? 2) What makes it so? 3) What is the researchers’ hypothesis? 4) What is the independent variable? 5) What is the dependent variable? 6) Is the researchers’ hypothesis supported?
