n other words, instead of showing a correlation, use the information to create an experiment to show how a researcher would determine what causes hyperactivity. What does a researcher need to do to show the “cause” of hyperactivity? In creating your experiment, don’t worry too much about ethical issues (this is pretend) but you should also be realistic. For an example of how to do an experiment, see the breastfeeding and Viagra experiments discussed on pp. 23-26.

Your experiment should include:

  1. a hypothesis (what does the article suggest about human behavior?)
  2. an independent variable
  3. a dependent variable
  4. an experimental group, and
  5. a control group

(50% of your score) Be sure to identify the 5 components in your study. Briefly explain/define the components and be sure that your understanding of each component is reflected in your application.

Be sure to take the time to

  • explain how you would set up the experiment (you can’t create a study just by listing the components of the study – explain what you would do), and
  • be sure that you are conducting an experiment (i.e., not a correlational study or a survey).

(50% of your score) In designing your experiment, your experiment should also include:

  • a sample group (use the sample discussed in the TV watching article)
  • random assignment (be sure to explain what it is)
  • how you would control your independent variable
  • how you would measure your dependent variable

You should not pretend that you actually completed the study and know the outcomes. Your job is to design an experiment using the variables offered in the TV watching article.
