Effect of the independent variable.
Process of recognizing or observing a pattern and then drawing a conclusion
An educated guess.
Examines data collected in the present, a stronger form of study due to greater control

Degree to which measures are free from error and yield consistent results.
A relationship in which changing one variable changes the other.
Sampling method where the population is divided into two or more stra or groups with different categories of a characteristic, to decrease bias when one group is larger than anothe
Important to assure readers that the researcher had no effect on the study

When the expectations of the study are conveyed to patient's and alter the study's outcome.
Model where definitions evolve throughout the course of research.
A study in which the researcher observes a situation without manipulating it.

A paradigm where the researcher does nothing to influence his findings.
No control measures or randomization are used in this study method.
Summarize what is to be achieved by the study, and clarify variables.

Allows experiments to be repeated and validated by other researchers.
Belief that research should be conducted via observation.

Taking a sample from the most convenient population.
Entire sets of persons, objects, or events.
Name one of the two major styles of research paradigms

An action plan that describes work to be done in a discipline.
Assumes that all traits or characteristics of organisms can be quantified.
