Question 1

  1. A(n) ________ occurs when ________ independent variable(s) have an effect in combination with one another.

    interaction; two or more

    interaction; two or less

    main effect; two or more

    main effect; two or less

Question 2

  1. Interested in the effects of different kinds of instruction on videogame performance, Martin asks 30 college freshmen to each play an hour of Ratchet and Klank. Participants are randomly assigned to one of three instruction groups: (1) complete the tasks as quickly as possible, (2) conserve as much health as possible (i.e., play more carefully), or (3) find gold bolts (worth lots of money in equipment and ammunition). If Martin averages the scores for each instruction group and then compares them, any differences in the means of the instruction groups reflect:

    individual differences in hand-eye coordination.

    inherent differences in the ability of the college freshmen to play video games.

    within-groups variance.

    between-groups variance.

Question 3

  1. Why can't a researcher just run multiple t tests when the independent variable has more than two levels?

    As you run more statistical tests, it becomes harder and harder to reject the null hypothesis.

    As you run more statistical tests, the probability that you will make a Type I error in one of the tests increases.

    As you run more statistical tests, you lose degrees of freedom.

    As you run more statistical tests, the probability that you will make a Type III error in one of those tests increases.

Question 4

  1. ________ is a term used to describe an independent variable in a study with more than one independent variable.

    Interaction

    Main effect

    Effect

    Factor

Question 5

  1. (Table: Coping with Pain) The cells of this study reflect an interaction between coping style and cognitive strategy. Which statement best describes the interaction?

    People using both distraction and sensation-monitoring cognitive strategies were able to keep their hand in the ice water for longer than 60 seconds, on average.

    People using a sensation-monitoring strategy were able to keep their hand in the ice water for longer.

    People using a distraction strategy were able to keep their hand in the ice water for longer.

    The effect of cognitive strategy depended on the coping style of the participant. Those with an avoiding coping style kept their hand in the ice water longer when using a distraction strategy, but those with a monitoring coping style kept their hand in the ice water longer when using a sensation-monitoring strategy.

    weekday snow reports were less interesting to skiers than weekend reports.

    snowfall reports were more common during weekends than weekdays, but this was even more true when there was fresh snow.

    snowfall reports were exaggerated, and this was more pronounced for the weather reports provided by radio stations compared to resorts.
