    the number of levels of one of the IVs
  6. Two disadvantages of conducting separate experiments rather than combining them.

    Independent Groups
  16. Is all the IV's in your factorial design use independent groups, what type of design are you using?

    Correlated groups
  18. If all the IV's in your experimnt use correlated groups, what type of design are you using?
    within-subjects factorial design
  19. Mixed factorial designs result from using both independent groups and correlated groups in a factorial design (mixed assignment). At least one IV must use independent groups and at least one must use correlated groups

    mixed factorial design
  24. The simplest possible factorial design would have______IVsand ______ total treatment groups.
  25. Keep it simple stupid
    Principle of Parsimony
  26. a research approach in which the experimenter cannot directly manipulate the IV but can only classify, categorize, or measurethe IV because it is prdetermined in the participants
    Ex. sex race age
    Ex post facto
  27. a factorial desighn with there IVs
    three way design
  28. Researchers create ______ by combining two-group or multiple-group designs.
    factorial design
  29. In factorial designs, statisitcal interpretations become more complicated because the increasing number of interactions.
  30. Suppose you wish to tes children from two different racial groups. You would be dealing with a _____ IV.
  31. Totally between-group designs use independent groups of pariticipants for each IV.
  32. Totally within-groups designs us correlated froups pf paricipant for all IVs.
  33. Mixed-groups designs have at least one IV that uses independent groups of paricipants and one that uses correlated groups
  34. Your experimental questions should beyur first consideration in choosing a factorial design because the number of questions you will ask will determine how many IVs your experiment will have.
  35. Interpret: three-way totally between groups design
    three IVs and would use random assignment of participants in all conditions.
  36. Interpret: two-way mixed ANOVA
    two IVs, one uses random assignment and one uses correlated assignment.
  37. Interpret: 2x3x2 completely between-groups design
    there IVs, 2,3,2 levels. assigned paricipants to each of the IVs in a random manner.
  38. Variability in DV scores due to the effects of the IV (also known as between-groups variablity)
    Treatment Variability
  39. Variability in DV scores due to factors other then the IV, such as individual differences, measurement error, and extraneous variation (also known as within groups variablity)
    Error Variability
  40. Dramatic consequences that occur when you combine two or more substances, conditions, or organisms. The effects are greater (or less) than what is individually possible.
    Synergeistic effects

    Programmatic research
  46. type of evaluation of your experiment; it asks whether you IV is the only possible explanation ot the results shown for you r DV.
    INternal validity
  47. Caused by and uncontrolled extranious variable that varies systemmatically with the IV.
  48. Uncontrolled variables that may unintentionally influence the dependent variable (DV) and thus invalidate an experiment.
