Step 1
The study design is the framework used to collect and analyze data.
Step 2
The randomized study design is the study in which the researcher randomly assigns the participants in the control and experimental group. Both groups receive different treatments under the same conditions.
Step 3
A double-blind study is a study in which neither the participant nor the experimenter knows which group is getting what treatment. It completely removes any bias in the study.
Step 4
A placebo is similar to real medicine in appearance, however, it has no therapeutic properties. To evaluate the effect of a drug, researchers administer a placebo to one group and the drug to another group. Such studies are called placebo-controlled studies.

A bank wants to know which of two incentive plans will most increase the use of its credit cards. It offers each incentive to a group of current credit card customers, determined at random, and compares the amount charged during the following six months.

When two targets are presented close together in a rapid visual stream, the second target is often missed. Psychologists call this phenomenon the attentional blink (AB). A study published in Advances in Cognitive Psychology (July 2013) investigated whether simultaneous or preceding sounds could reduce AB. Twenty subjects were presented a rapid visual stream of symbols and letters on a computer screen and asked to identify the first and second letters (the targets). After several trials, the subject's AB magnitude was measured as the difference between the percentages of first target and second target letters correctly identified. Each subject performed the task under each of three conditions. In the Simultaneous condition, a sound (tone) was presented simultaneously with the second target; in the Alert condition, a sound was presented prior to the coming of the second target; and in the No-Tone condition, no sound was presented with the second target. Scatterplots of AB magnitude for each possible pair of conditions are shown below as well as the least squares line for each. a. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the steepest estimated slope? b. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the largest SSE? c. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the smallest estímate of σ?

Suppose you were to collect data for each pair of variables. You want to make a scatterplot. Which variable would you use as the explanatory variable and which as the response variable? Why? What would you expect to see in the scatterplot? Discuss the likely direction, form, and strength. A streetlight: its apparent brightness, your distance from it.
