Experimental
Designs Worksheet

 

Fill in the Blank

Using the terms
listed below, complete the following:

 


  1. ___________ group receives
    treatment in an experimental design.

  2. ___________ group does not
    receive treatment in an experimental design.

  3. A ___________ design has
    many observations on a single case or a few subjects.

  4. When separate groups of
    subjects receive different levels of the independent variable, this is
    referred to as _____________ design.

  5. When all subjects receive
    all levels of the independent variable, this is referred to as
    ____________ design.

  6. When the researcher
    measures a behavior that needs to be changed and then applies therapy and
    measures the behavior again, this is referred to as _____________ design.

  7. When the researcher
    measures a behavior that needs to be changed, applies therapy and measures
    the behavior again, and then removes the treatment and measures the behavior
    again, this is referred to as ______________ design.

  8. When the criterion outcome
    changes over time this is referred to as _______________ design.

  9. When measuring several
    behaviors or several people with baseline periods of varying lengths and
    an independent variable occurs, this is referred to as a ______________
    design.

  10. When subjects are not
    randomly assigned and not all variables are under the control of the
    presenter, this is referred to as ______________ design.

Matching

Read the following scenarios and match each
scenario with the correct type of experimental design.

 


  1. _____ Two classes of children are studied regarding the effects
    of a new teaching method in science. 
    One group received the new method of instruction, while the other
    group uses the standard, traditional method of instruction. Both classes
    are measures for achievement before and after the teaching methods.



 


  1. _____ Divide your subjects in half.  One group receives one treatment of the
    independent variable and the other group receives a different treatment of
    the independent variable. Subjects were all told they were going to see a
    video of a therapist's session after which they would rate the quality of
    the session. The groups differed in that the subjects in one group were
    told that prior evaluations indicated that the therapist was effective
    whereas subjects in the other group were told that the evaluations
    indicated the therapist was not effective. These different subjects were
    used for the two levels of the independent variable: subjects were in
    either the "effective therapist" or the "ineffective
    therapist" condition.



 


  1. _____ All subjects perform at all levels of the independent
    variable.  Subjects diagnosed
    as having attention deficit disorder were each tested on a concentration
    task after receiving medication. All subjects were tested four times, once
    after receiving one of the four doses. Each subject was tested under each of the four levels of the
    independent variable-dose of medication.

  2. _____ A small group is measured for the amount of anxiety they
    experience in math class (baseline). 
    They are taught a relaxation method and measured again to measure
    anxiety in math class.



 


  1. _____ To study verbal commands in
    canines, during week 1 the baseline is recorded for how many times a dog
    chased a cat.  During week 2, dog
    was verbally scolded (treatment) when the dog chased the cat, and the
    chasing behavior was recorded. 
    During week 3, the chasing behavior was recorded without the
    verbal scolding (treatment).



 

A. Between-Subjects Design          B. AB Design                  C. Quasi-Experimental Design

D. ABA Design                              E. Within-Subjects Design
