2)A major disadvantage of observational research is that:Select one:a. standardized observational instruments are not very reliable.b. only overt behaviors can be observed.c. observers may make biased reports.d. the presence of the observer may affect the behavior that is to be observed.3)The manifest content of a text is:Select one:a. measured objectively.b. interpreted subjectively by the coder.c. measured less reliably than its latent content.d. always preferable to latent content.4)The major advantage of cluster sampling over simple random sampling is that it:Select one:a. saves time and money.b. yields more reliable research findings.c. yields a higher degree of randomness in heterogeneous populations.d. yields a higher degree of randomness in homogeneous populations.5)A random sample is one in which:Select one:a. every group of the population is represented equally.b. every member of the population has an equal chance of being selected.c. every member of the population has an equal and independent chance of being selected.d. every member of the population has an independent chance of being selected.6)The purpose of a baseline measurement is to:Select one:a. establish the current level of behaviour.b. evaluate the reliability of the measure.c. establish that recording instruments are working properly.d. demonstrate the treatment effect.7) Which one of the following is not a basic control strategy in single-subject research? Select one:a. withdrawing the treatmentb. repeating treatmentsc. using multiple baselinesd. changing more than one variable at a time
