Sample text

The idea is that you create all possible combinations, so that you even out or eliminate any particular bias that would make performance in one condition superior to any other instance. 1 for how we could use rotation to eliminate practice effects and any order effects in the list of words used. A further concern would be any differences between the two lists. Ideally the experimenter makes the words as similar as possible (for example, in terms of their length, how often the words are used in everyday language, and so on).

So, always seek advice from your target population: for example, if you are male and your study is on women’s attitudes, seek advice from women about whether the materials are offensive in any way. 1 While you need to inform all participants of the purpose of your study, there is one problem area. In many cases, if they knew the hypothesis then this would affect their behaviour and the results may be meaningless. In this instance you are allowed to disguise the hypothesis but only if, on being told the hypothesis afterwards, your participants are neither upset nor insulted in any way.

A ceiling effect occurs when hardly anyone makes an error (performance “hits the ceiling”). A floor effect occurs when hardly anyone gets anything correct. Your tasks should be “discriminating”, in that you need a good spread of scores, with few participants making zero errors or having zero correct. The key here is to pilot your method: try it out on yourself or friends before testing your participants. If you find that the task is too easy or difficult you can then make changes to it before spending time on testing.
