Welcome to your Stat Quiz 06 Your Name 1. Naturalistic observation is less useful than other research methods for:investigating complex social settings.developing theories based on observation.studying well-defined hypotheses under precisely specified conditions.making observations in a natural setting over an extended period of time.2. A good naturalistic observation will support the analysis by using:only qualitative data.only quantitative data.multiple confirmations.correlational analysis.3. _____ refers to the careful observation of one or more specific behaviors in a particular setting.Systematic observationContent analysisArchival researchExperimental analysis4. What is the difference between quantitative and qualitative methods of describing behavior?Qualitative research focuses on people behaving in natural settings, whereas quantitative research focuses on specific behaviors that can be easily counted.Quantitative research draws conclusions based on interpretations of the investigator, whereas conclusions in qualitative research are based upon statistical analysis of data.Quantitative research focuses on people describing their world in their own words, whereas qualitative research focuses on people describing their experiences under experimental conditions.Quantitative research emphasizes collecting information from a few individuals, whereas qualitative research emphasizes collecting data from higher number of individuals.5. Which of the following is an advantage of conducting a naturalistic observation?It allows studying well-defined hypotheses under precisely specified conditions.Its process of analysis that follows the completion of a research is simple.It can be used to provide a complete and accurate picture of what occurred in a setting.It can be used to study all issues or phenomena.6. In the context of participation and concealment, concealed observation:is preferable from an ethical viewpoint.may lead to an invasion of privacy of the participants at times.may influence and alter the behavior of those being observedis more reactive than nonconcealed observation.7. Dr. Liu participates in a police ride-along program in order to examine the day-to-day activities of police officers. This method of gathering information may best be described as a(n) _____.naturalistic observationarchival studyexperimental analysissurvey8. The goal of naturalistic observation is to:conduct research in experimental rather than real environments.provide a complete and accurate picture of what occurred in a setting.get quick answers to theoretical questions.test hypotheses formed prior to the study.9. Which of the following is an accurate statement about participant observation?The researcher does not become an active part of the setting.The researcher will not be able to experience events in the same way as natural participants.The researcher always makes unbiased observations.The researcher may lose the objectivity to conduct scientific observation.10. Which of the following is an accurate statement about systematic observation?Systematic observation is sometimes called field work or simply field observation.In systematic observation studies, the researcher frequently has developed prior hypotheses about the behaviors.Very few behaviors can be studied using systematic observation.Systematic observation research is much more global than naturalistic observation research.
