Question

Suppose that you are a researcher who would like to investigate the difference between sex influences class room participation. What type of research study would be best suited for this task, and how would you implement it?

Answer #1

Historical research would best suit this type of research. It’s a qualitative research that helps the researcher look into the past events and results through the documents and decide the results as well as predict the future trend based on those results. It includes steps such as formulating an idea, planning the process, collecting the data, analyse both the data and the sources of data. The data could be collected from the schools around the researcher’s school district and then it could be done for the entire country to validate the results. Sometimes, the differences are also due to the cultural differences thus validating the results with various cultural population across the globe is also really important as the place of women differs between cultures.

Suppose as a researcher you wish to conduct a study on the
differences in examination scores between male and female students

As a researcher, we tested the hypothesis that there is a
difference in attractiveness between a hat-backwards condition and
a hat-forwards condition. We recruited 6 undergraduates who
completed the Index of Hat-Position Attractiveness scale (IHPAS)
while wearing the hat backwards, and then while wearing the hat
forwards. Assuming a two tailed test with a critical value of 5%
and a corresponding tcrit of 2.571, you found a t-score
of 12.65. Answer the following questions about this study.

A researcher would
like to determine whether caffeine has an effect on mental
alertness after sleep deprivation. A sample of n = 25
participants is obtained, and each person is given a cup of coffee,
after one night of total sleep deprivation, one hour before being
tested in a driving simulation task. For the general population
with one night of losing sleep, scores on the simulation task are
normally distributed with μ = 66. The individuals in the
sample had...
