mean differences between groups that have been split on two independent variables (called factors). You need two independent, categorical variables and one continuous, dependent variable. Assumptions * Dependent variable is either interval or ratio (continuous) * The dependent variable is approximately...
coding categories should be provided for all subjects or objects or response. • Categories should be mutually exclusive and independent – there should be no overlap between the categories, to ensure that a subject or response can be placed in only one category. Recode • Recoding is the process...
design is a research method in which researcher tries to examine causal effects by manipulating independent variable under controlled settings and measures whether it produces any change to the dependent variable. In an experiment experimenter deliberately imposes a treatment on a group of objects or subjects...
technique for analyzing data when the criterion or dependent variable is categorical and the predictor or independent variables are interval in nature. Discriminant function analysis is used to determine which continuous variables discriminate between two or more naturally occurring groups. For example...
variation in respondent’s understanding is reduced if not completely eliminated. VARIABLES An image, perception or conception that is capable of being measured and can take on different values The way variables are measured in a study will determine whether the study is a qualitative or quantitative...
used when there are two or more dependent variables. It helps to answer : 1. do changes in the independent variable(s) have significant effects on the dependent variables; 2. what are the interactions among the dependent variables and 3. among the independent variables.[1] Where sums of squares appear...
psychology, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine etc. Experimental research tests a hypothesis and establishes causation by using independent and dependent variables in a controlled environment. KEY POINTS Experiments are generally the most precise studies and have the most conclusive power. They...
effects of categorical independent variables (called "factors") on an interval dependent variable. The new general linear model (GLM) version of ANOVA also supports categorical dependents. A "main effect" is the direct effect of an independent variable on the dependent variable. An "interaction effect"...
limited to cases where the dependent variable an interval variable. Discriminant analysis is a technique for analyzing data when the criterion or dependent variable is categorical and the predictor or independent variables are interval in nature. In many cases dependent variable consist of two or more...
individuals or objects under investigation. Factor analysis identifies the structure underlying a set of variables Discriminant analysis differentiates among groups based on a set of variables. All the variables must be random and interrelated in such ways that their different effects cannot meaningfully be...
Exam 1. 1. All continuous random variables are normally distributed. False. 2. The actual weight of hamburger patties is an example of a continuous random variable. True 3. The college of business administration at acorn University offers a major in finance. Based on historical records, 30% of the college...
coefficients of the linear equation, involving one or more independent variables, that best predict the value of the dependent variable. For example, you can try to predict a salesperson’s total yearly sales (the dependent variable) from independent variables such as age, education, and years of experience. ...
relationship between independent and dependent variables? (To see how the two or more variables are connected) Partial correlation Partial correlation is a method used to describe the relationship between two variables while controlling the effects of another variable, or several other variables, on this...
a confounding variable and why do researchers try to eliminate confounding variables? Provide two examples of confounding variables. 2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of posttest only design and pretest-posttest design? 3. What is meant by sensitivity of a dependent variable? 4. What are...
course of treatment using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The dependent variable is a success score based on responses to patient and GP post-treatment questionnaires. The potential predictors includes scores on three variables regarded as providing good approximations to interval scales: SELFTEST...

MULTIPLE REGRESSION The difference between simple and multiple regression is similar to the difference between one way and factorial ANOVA. Like one-way ANOVA, simple regression analysis involves a single independent, or predictor variable and a single dependent, or outcome variable. This is the same number...

VARIABLES | | | Very simply, a VARIABLE is a measurable characteristic that varies. It may change from group to group, person to person, or even within one person over time. There are six common variable types: | DEPENDENT VARIABLES | . . . show the effect of manipulating or introducing the...
