Chapter 14 Generalizing Results Most participants in studies are college students because it is easier to gain interest. Results of studies using college students may not produce the same results with other populations. It is difficult to generalize results without replication. Rats are inexpensive and valuable in many research studies. Differences in experimenters can result in differences among participants. A pretest is necessary for some experiments and not others. Replication: repeating a study done by a previous experimenter. Exact replication: doing a study the exact same way the previous researcher did and expecting the same results. Conceptual Replication: replicating the main themes of the study, but different procedure. o This is important to see how the concept applies to different settings. A literature review summarizes research, states which findings are supported, tells where research is lacking and talks about future directions. Metaanalysis: combining the results of many studies. Research is useful for healthcare, law, education, and work environments. Psychologists often post information online about parenting, education, mental health, and many other topics.
