1Dr. Stern randomly samples people on State Street who are wearing headphones or earbuds and measures how loud the volume is set. The good doctor discovers that there is a negative correlation between subject age and speaker volume. Can he conclude that there is an association between these two variables?YesNo, correlation is not causationNo, there may be a confounding variable that explains the relationshipNo, he needs to replicate his research first.No, B and C are both correctA

5Carlos is interested in studying the drinking habits of American college students. He interviews an equal number freshman, sophomore, junior and senior students at his university. What type of sample does Carlos have?RandomStratifiedRepresentativeCross SectionalBiasedE
6Wundt is to Structuralism as ______ is to _______. Hull: IntrospectionJames: FunctionalismWatson: ExperimentationWashburn: BehaviorismRogers: Psychoanalysis
7A study looked at the amount of time that teenage girls spent watching soap operas and how sexually active they were. They found that there was a positive correlation between hours of TV and the amount of sexual behavior engaged in. What does this mean?It means that television had a positive effect on teen's sexual behavior.It means that teens who had more sexual behavior watched less televisionIt means that soap operas caused the girls to become more sexually active.It means that more time spent watching television was associated with increased sexual behavior.
8Class QuestionA study by Henriques et al. (1994) examined responses to reward and punishment in depressed and nondepressed subjects, which of the following is the independent variable?a) Response accuracyb) Genderc) Payoff conditiond) Response biase) Subjects' handedness
9Class QuestionIn a study by Henriques et al. (1994) study, it was found that depressed subjects did not change their responses to reward while nondepressed subjects did. Can we conclude that depression causes individuals to be less susceptible to the effects of reward?a) Yes, depressed subjects were less sensitive to rewardb) No, because we don't know if these depressed subjects are typical of all individuals with depressionc) Yes, because all subjects got the manipulation of reward and punishmentd) No, because we did not manipulate subjects' moodD
10An experimenter randomly assigns boys and girls to one of two experimental conditions: one group watches Miami CSI and the other group watches American Idol. Afterwards subjects are given the opportunity to administer shocks to small singing rodents. Boys who watched CSI administered more shocks than all of the other subjects. Can we conclude that CSI made these boys more aggressive?a) Yesb) No, because gender is a confound in this studyc) No, because correlation is not causationd) No, because we don’t know what TV shows these subjects normally watche) No, because we don't know if the CSI group was more violent before the study beganA
11In the previous study, can we conclude that boys are more susceptible to the effects of television violence than girls?YesNoA
12Pizzagalli et al. (2005) measured the brain activity of depressed and nondepressed subjects under reward and punishment conditions. They found that depressed subjects had different patterns of brain activity during the different payoff conditions. What conclusions can we draw from this studyChanges in brain activity are not related to changes in reward or punishment for depressed subjects.That depression causes changes in the brain activity of depressed subjects during reward and punishment.That depression is associated with different patterns of brain activity during reward and punishment.We can't draw any conclusions as this is only one study.
13Mr. McGrath has observed that the more times that a student is late to class the lower the student's gpa. Which of the following statements would be correct when he presents his findings to his students?If you want to improve your grades in school, you have to start coming to class on time.There is a positive correlation between gpa and arriving late to class. You're much more likely to have a low gpa if you are regularly late to class.There is a negative correlation between gpa and arriving late to class.Because coming late to class does not make your gpa go down, we can't make any conclusions about these two variables.If you don’t start coming to class on time, your grades will not improve.

15Dr. Stern randomly samples people at the Farmers’ Market who are wearing headphones or earbuds and measures how loud the volume is set.
