Wednesday, January 27, 2016 Psychology Lecture Notes from 01/27/2016 - review: Carl Rogers-humanistic beliefs - operational definition: is concrete and memorable (ex: intelligence is the score achieved on an IQ test) - Operationalization: the process of coming up with definitions (think about how you can describe being healthy or being in good health - if someone says they are healthy, so many different things come to mind) - you can really do anything with these definitions - Hypothesis testing: you need something to measure, as well as a tool to measure that thing - Observations in psychology are different because humans are complex thanks to the brain, people are different from one another, people are reactive to the things going on around them (if someone is watching you, you will act differently then you will when you are alone) - Measurement: VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY - VALIDITY: the extent to which an operational definition and a property are related (frequency of smiling and happiness) - RELIABILITY: the tendency for a measure to consistently produce the same measurement (your scale v. your doctor’s scale/using your scale 5 times in a row) - systematic observation: collecting data and using science to prove it - COLLECTING DATA it is either QUALITATIVE or QUANTITATIVE - qualitative: quality (think of a paragraph where someone is explaining something to you-you are getting a sense of what they are experiencing) - quantitative: quantity (putting a number to something) - Draw Conclusions/revise a theory: - examine and analyze collected data (does it support the hypothesis) - if no, then… 1 Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - start back at the beginning or revise theory to match all available data - If yes, then… - more evidence to support the theory by doing another test/test further hypotheses under different conditions or contexts 2
