Quiz 5 1. True experimental designs in research have which of the following? A) randomization B) blinding C) valid measures D) statistical analysis 2. Which of the following types of designs would be strongest for establishing cause and effect? A) static-group comparison B) time series C) matched comparison group D) randomized posttest control group E) one group pretest posttest 3. A scatter plot with scores forming a “blob” or “cloudburst” (no pattern) would yield a correlation coefficient that is about: A) +.50 B) 0 C) -.50 D) 1.00 4.When a correlation between two variables can be “explained away” by reference to a third variable, it is said that the relationship is: A) inferential B) spurious C) significant D) discrete 5. Which of the following represents a negative (inverse) relationship? A) r = .75 B) r = .50 C) r = .00 D) r = -.80 6. All of the following are considered qualitative research designs except: A) narrative B) quasi-experimental C) ethnography D) phenomenology 7. All of the following tend to describe the trustworthiness of qualitative data except: A) standardized B) credible C) dependable D) confirmable 8. The use of multiple data sources or data collection procedures as a method of qualitative cross-validation is known as: A) quality control B) triangulation C) counter-control D) verification E) collaboration 9. Focusing on the culture of a group is most likely found in: A) case studies B) ethnographies C) surveys D) true experiments 10. The null hypothesis is most directly related to which of the following? A) bias B) control C) deduction D) chance Extra Credit: You might have to do a little research for this one. What is a poststructural theoretical perspective? How does it function in qualitative research? Quiz 6 1.Research findings with limited application are related to a study’s: A) instrumentation B) alternative explanations C) generalization D) reliability 2. In a general sense, how a study was conducted is referred to as its: A) purpose B) methodology C) instrumentation D) problem statement 3. A study that yielded no statistically significant findings coupled with very low power would be faulted in what area? A) instrumentation B) conclusion logic C) sampling plan D) problem statement 4. One common weakness of educational research is the failure of findings to extend beyond the borders of a study, a problem known as: A) limited generalization B) internal invalidity C) measurement unreliability D) test insensitivity E) statistical restriction 5. The chapter points out that one of the most difficult weaknesses to identify in educational research is the: A) extent to which the data satisfy assumptions B) connection to a larger body of literature C) extent to which ethical guidelines are followed D) alternative or counter interpretations E) plausibility of the theoretical background 6. In a research proposal, what section includes a summary of existing knowledge and ideas related to the research problem and a synthesis of key research studies already published? A) planned discussion B) appendix C) literature review D) methodology 7. Qualitative research proposals often include a section on: A) desirable response rates B) power analysis C) strategies for coding D) standardized transformations of scores 8. Which of the following is most directly related to a recommended style of writing research proposals? A) SPSS B) ERIC C) Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association D) What Works Clearinghouse 9. A review of research in many areas of research will often reveal: A) mixed or contradictory findings B) definitive findings C) very few related empirical studies D) ground breaking studies 10. All of the following are criteria for evaluating research proposals except: A) The problem being investigated and its significance are made crystal clear. B) The conceptualization of hypotheses follows a logical line of reasoning. C) The proposal itself meets the 50-page rule. D) The plan for analysis and reporting the findings are well matched to the data collected. E) There is a clear strategy for interpreting findings with reference to theory, policy, practice, or further research. Extra Credit: In a paragraph or less, discuss what is the solution to the educational challenges of today, and how does educational research play a role.
