Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering advanced experimentation. I use this for my Research Methods Unit in AP Psychology class.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is guaranteed to capture student attention. Each slide has rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Topics covered include:
a review of basic experimentation terms
population and sample
random sampling and random assignment
single-blind vs. double-blind study and experimenter bias
placebo, placebo effect, and self-fulfilling prophecy
statistical significance and p-value
operational definitions and replication
In addition, the file contains an activity to demonstrate operational definitions and replication through the usage of legos.
