1. A discussed advantage to a case study is that:
A researcher can introduce different variables to subjects
This study reduces the potential of manipulation of subjects
A researcher can influence the study by changing independent variables
A researcher may learn personal details of a person
2. Which of these would NOT be an appropriate case study:
A shop during business hours
The beach during daytime hours
A pier during the day
A face-to-face conversation with a subject
3. Phenomenology would mainly be used to:
Determine if a mouse responds to different food
Observe a shop during business hours
Gain several perspectives of an event
Acquire the census of a city
4. Phenomenology is most related with:
Observing an environment without the interaction of people
Understanding an event as participants experience it
Gathering a large amount of data through mail or electronically
The three-door approach
5. What is the most important measure of research for the general public?
Large sample size
To take complex ideas and make them easily understood
Large amounts of quantitative data
Perceived importance of the study
6. Who performs practitioner research?
A full time researcher
An outside source
A major university
Someone working in the field
7. What is important about practitioner research?
It is reviewed by outside peers
It is performed in a lab
It is published in a text book
It is on the internet
8. Quantitative research:
A. Is the systematic investigation of observable phenomena
B. Uses statistical, mathematical, or computational techniques
C. Neither a or b
D. Both a and b
9. Quantitative research is recommended most often:
At the beginning of research
Before qualitative research
After qualitative research
Along with an experiment
10. What type of atmosphere is suggested for interviews?
All of the above
11. A personalized interview is an example of which type of research?
12. Which factor aids in research credibility?
All of the above
13. What is a good motive for approaching research?
Prove something wrong
Find the Truth
Prove what you know is right
14. What is the purpose of correlation?
To determine the amount of data collected
To explain research methods
To show an increase in results
To determine which variables are connected
15. What are the three identified types of correlation?
Increased, decreased, equal
Positive, negative, zero
Qualitative, quantitative, experimental
None of the above
16. Qualitative research is considered a "soft science" because:
A) It is a precursor to quantitative research, and produces no measurable results; only observes patterns.
B) It allows for delicate alteration of control variables.
C) It produces minimal measurable results that are not capable of producing statistical data.
D) Both B and C are correct.
17. Qualitative research aims to:
Observe patterns and formulate hypotheses.
Discover profound novel information.
Reach large quantities of subjects.
Debunk quantitative data.
18. What field of study can benefit from the true experiment design the most?
All of the above
19. With true experiment design, which statement is true: (a) the dependent variable will remain constant and consistent throughout the variations of the experiment; or, (b) the independent variable demands the consistency of the dependent variable to determine the relationship relative to the results.
(a) Is true while (b) is false.
(b) Is true while (a) is false.
Both (a) and (b) are true
Neither (a) nor (b) are true.
20. What is meta analysis?
The statistical procedure for combining data from multiple studies.
The study of how different groups share phenomena.
Systematic investigation of phenomena
A form of research where all factors are completely controlled
