Extent to which a measure procedure actually measures what it is intended to measure

I every reliable, but not valid Types of validity L e face valididy, extent to which a measure
appears to measure what it is supposed to measure
• Construct validitys extent to which a measure relates to other measures of the same hupothetical construct Don't forget about the age old question of What is the meaning of legislation in law?
converget validity: correlates with other measure it should
2o Divergent validity does not correlate with measures it shouldn't o you want your measure to correlate with smilar resuts Don't forget about the age old question of Where is the alpha carbon in an amino acid?
Critenon - Related validity: extent to which a measure allows us to distingush among porn lapants on the basis of a particular behavioral chteron Don't forget about the age old question of Who has authored and established the first family?

Statistics Laudis Descriptive
used to describle samples & populations
un ex. 24% of the sample recruited were male
oused to draw conculsions about reliablite and generalizability of findes
exo there's a less than .05% Chance that these findings were due to a random chance
Vanance statistic that indicate the amant of observed vanability in participants behavior
- Range distance from smallest to largest score
- mean sum of set of scores luded by a number of score
The more spread at the scores are arand the mean the better
Deviation Scores & sums of sauares (Process)
lo find mean of a sample
2. Calculate deviation scores by subractiy the mean from each score
3. Square each of the denance scores to get ride of negative signs
40 Add up the saware a declance score (sum of squars)
5. Divide the sums of squares by one less than. the total number of scores in
so you get your variance (higher #ha
more vanance) Total variance
• Total vanance = Systematic variance + Error Vaniance
• Sustematic vanance : part of the total vanability in partiapants' behavior that is related in a ordeny, predictable fashon to the vanables
o exo lookre at the effects of age on amount of pies eaten: how much vanability is actually due to age
• Error Variance vanance that remains unaccanted
for in the study due to extraneous factors outside of exe vanance due to indindial hunger your control levels, preference for pie ar cake, portion size

Assess the strength of the relationship between variables bella studied
no exo proportion of how much of the total variance is due to sistematic variance &
haysoup 0.00 effect size has no affect at all B 01.00 effect size means that all out the total vanances is due to systematic vanance (a perfect relationship, almost never happens)
o we can use the results of multiple studies to examine effect sizes
1o Analysis and integration of results from a large set of individual studies. and Estimate effect size across the results of
all the studies S o This is more relabable than lookig at
