  23. Which of the following is true regarding a one-tailed test?
  24. The z test is a parametric statistical test that allows us to test the null hypothesis for a single sample when the population variance is known.
  25. Nonparametric tests are tests that can be used when population parameters are not needed.

  31. The difference between population means in terms of standard deviations is called the effect size.
  32. The chi-square (χ2) goodness-of-fit test is a nonparametric statistical test used for comparing categorical information against what we would expect based on previous knowledge.
  33. A test that can be used with nominal data is:

  40. It has been said that the methods section of a research proposal is the most concrete of all the sections.

  42. There is a chance that a researcher can create two equal groups.
  43. The participants in post facto design are measured on a trait that the participant already possesses.
  44. Examples of quasi-experimental designs include ___________________.
  45. A design in which participants are measured on a trait they already possess and assigned to categories based on that trait, rather than manipulating the independent variable is the ______________.
  46. The quasi-experimental research design, on the continuum of robustness is usually at one end of the continuum with the correlational design at the opposite end.
  47. A research design often used in the behavioral sciences, especially counseling is known as the:
  48. When creating groups, a researcher can feel more confident about how equivalent they are based on ___________________.
  49. The nonequivalent control group design involves a group comparison where the control group is equivalent to the research group.
  50. Since quasi-experimental research is on the continuum of robustness between true experimental design and correlational research:
