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.
