The two main types of research.

What is library research and online research?

100

Uses deductive reasoning with forced response questions.

What is quantitative methods?

100

An instrument designed to gather data directly from respondents by their completion of written responses to items on a paper form or computer screen.

What is a Questionnaire?

100

This is the research design type which is most effective in examining cause and effect relationships between variables.

What are experiments?

100

Adresses the question of whether the intervention, rather than other factors, is responsible for improvement in the client outcome varible.

What is Internal Validity?

200

a systematic evaluation of some aspect of the social service delivery system.

What is evaluation research?

200

The more flexiable method.

What is qualitative methods?

200

quantitative attempts at description. Some observational designs and studies using existing data are also quantitative.

What is a survey?

200

the measure of the clients goal before introducing an intervention.

What is a baseline

200

the two ways to measure reliability.

what is internal and external reliability?


300
A research approach that can be implemented in each of the steps of the general research process.

What is Participatory Action Research (PAR)?

300

The method that has several advantages over the other when it comes to measuring.

What is Quantitative methods?

300

questionaires with forced-response questions that are easy to answer without any assistance from the researcher.

What are structured questionaires?

300

The types of evaluation research design.

What is experimental and quasi-experimental, Single-subject, cost-benefit analysis, Discrepancy model, Hammonds model, Judicial model, client satisfaction approaches.

300

correlation between test and external event in the present.

What is concurrent validity?

400

Resercher commited to being neutral and to avioding introducing bias.

What is neutrality?

400

Semi- or unstructured searches, observe behaviors that are more likely to be open-ended and less likely to be quantified.

What is qualitative methods?

400

4 Strengths of surveys have.

What is particularly useful for large populations, permits data collection from a large sample, permits the analysis of several variables simultaneously, permits standardized measurement.

400

A pre-experimental design that is the weakest of all. involves collecting data at only one point in time after the intervention is implemented.

What is One-Group Posttest-Only Design

400

this is less of an issue since there are usually several ways of measuring the concepts involved. Validity is more likely to be measured directly.

What is realiability in qualitative analysis?

500

8 purposes social workers use research.

What is exploration, description, explanation, evaluation, constructing measurement instruments, prediction, intelligent intervention, and awareness? 
500

the fact that such research is more detailed, with many measurements of the elements, increases the chance of higher validity.

What is validity in qualitative?

500

the location of sensitive questions in a survey.

what is located at the end of a survey or not included if not necessary?


500

The experiement with a baseline with three different interventions and follow-up measurements after each.

ABACADA

500

the four relationships between validity and reliability.

What is a test that is valid is reliable, a test that is not valid may/may not be reliable, a test that is reliable may/may not be valid. a test that is not reliable is not valid.
