Introduction to designing experiments( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This light-hearted introduction to design looks at research methods and statistics. After an initial lack of preparation, adam takes us through his design and method. He looks at replication, IVs & DVs, Null/Alternative hypotheses, one/two tailed hypotheses, field/lab experiments, sampling. primacy/recency effects, constant/random errors and more. He goes to a park to watch dog walkers and test a "pet" theory, but lack of planning leads the first experiment to failure. In his next experiment - analysing the opinions of the friends he cooks a meal for - he stresses the need for careful preparation. He tests his friends, debriefs and touches on the ethics of deceiving his friends
