  • thnks a lot u make the concept so good in understanding I really like it I wanna see more of this unit in other part as well hope u read my msg.Thnks.

  • But marry, I m little confused in the topics of correlation coefficient. Like for instance, are those 2 no 2 variables or what and why n how is the closer the coefficient is to 1 be it a positive or negative , the relationship is stronger or coefficient is to 0 the weaker the relationship, I m really confused. No matter you haven't got many views as you deserve I will be ur good student from Australia at the moment . Thank you.

  • Thank you for your work here!
    In a few hours I have my final exam in Research Methods.
    I wish more teachers would have your approach to the thematic of this discipline.
    Just a curiosity, do you have some kind of teaching preparation? You would be a great teacher nevertheless.

  • It seems to me, that any psychological experiment in which the subject is aware they are being observed is corrupted data. I understand that ethical limitations prevent observing subjects without their concent, but that does not change the fact that a testing environment alters their natural behavior. I suppose this justifies my lifelong skepticism of laboratory, survey, and correlation psychology studies.
    I wonder how much significant psychological data could be acquired from the total, unnoticed surveillance of a workplace or school, ideally with the use of both visual and audio surveillance. Perhaps offering a waiver to all the participants and requiring unanimous approval from the subjects would work? Possibly with a reward as incentive?
    If the data were acquired passively by audio and video, would the subjects eventually forget they are being observed and behave as if they weren't?
    To remedy the issue of those who wouldn't accept the waiver, what about something like a special, single dormitory on a campus being used for video and audio surveillance? I mean total surveillance, like everywhere but the bathroom.
    I'm sure there would be enough participation to fill the place if monetary incentive were used. Simply make it clear that all footage and recording would strictly be used for psychological research, and it should all work out. Then we have untampered and natural behavior to study.
    Alternatively, what about using a trained observer to pose as a student? (Or a co-worker) Leave him exempt from the duties of a student, and pay him to psychologically observe other students?
    Maybe this method could even be used individually. After a contractual agreement, put the home of a voluntary psychiatric patient under total surveillance. Then the psychiatrist could evaluate all of the patients behaviors, instead of just what the patient reveals during sessions. Make it clear that the footage would only be used for psychiatric evaluation, and you have untampered behavior to give a better idea of how to help that patient.
