0

## Case study

### An in depth study of one individual

1

## Causality

### A relationship such that variation in one dimension soon produces variation in another

2

## Clinically significant

### An association large enough to have some practical importance

3

## Correlation

### A relationship in which two variables or dimensions covert when measured repeatedly

4

## Correlation coefficient

### A numerical index of the degree of correlation between two variables

5

## Dependent variable

### The variable measured as the outcome of an experiment the effect in a cause effect relationship

6

## Descriptive statistics

### Statistic used to describe or characterize one group

7

## Experience sampling

### A method in which people report repeatedly on their current experiences

8

## Experimental control

### The holding constant of variables that are not being manipulated

9

## Experimental method

### The methods in which one variable us manipulated to test fur casual influence on another variable

10

## Experimental personality research

### A study involving a personality factor and an experimental factor

11

## Generality

### The variable manipulated in a. Experiment and tested as the cause in a cause and effect relationship

14

## Inferential statistics

### Statistics used to judge whether a relationship exists between variables

15

## Interaction

### A finding in which the effect of one predictor variable differs depending on the level of another predictor variable

16

## Main effect

### A finding in which the effect of one predictor variable is independent of other variables

17

## Multi factorial study

### A study with two or more predictor variables

18

## Personology

### The study of the whole person

19

## Practical significance

### Association large enough to have practice importance

20

## Random assignment

### The process of putting ppl randomly in groups of experiment so their characteristics balance out across groups

21

## Statistical significance

### The likelihood of an obtained effect occurring when there is no true effect

22

## Third variable problem

### The possibility that an unmeasured variable caused variations in both of two correlated variables
