The counselor is using A) a Pearson Product-Moment Correlation coefficient B) a factorial design C) the harmonic mean D) the mean - CORRECT ANSWER D) the mean From a mathematical standpoint, the mean is merely the sum of the scores divided by the number of scores.

A distribution of their scores would A) always be a bimodal distribution B) be positively skewed C) be negatively skewed D) produce a curve with a long tail to the left side of the graph - CORRECT ANSWER B) be positively skewed Billy received an 82 on his college math final. This is Billy's raw score on the test. A raw score simply refers to the number of items correctly answered. A raw score is expressed in the units by which it was originally obtained. The raw score is not altered mathematically. Billy's raw score indicates that A) he is roughly a B student B) he answered 82% correctly C) his percentile rank is 82 D) more information is obviously necessary - CORRECT ANSWER D) more information is obviously necessary A distribution with class intervals can be graphically displayed via a bar graph also called a A) histogram B) sociogram C) genogram D) genus - CORRECT ANSWER A) histrogram When a horizontal line is drawn under a frequency distribution it is known as A) mesokurtic B) the y axis C) the ordinate D) the x axis - CORRECT ANSWER D) the x axis The x axis is used to plot the IV scores. The x axis could also be called the ______ on your exam A) y axis B) abscissa C) DV D) vertical axis - CORRECT ANSWER B) abscissa The y axis is used to plot the frequency of the DVs. The y axis could also be called the ______ on your exam A) ordinate B) abscissa C) IV D) horizontal axis - CORRECT ANSWER A) ordinate If a distribution is bimodal, then there is a good chance that A) the curve will be normal B) the curve will be shaped like a symmetrical bell C) the researcher is working with two distinct populations D) the researcher is useless in the field of counseling - CORRECT ANSWER C) the researcher is working with two distinct populations If an experiment can be replicated by others with almost identical findings, then the experiment is A) impacted by the observer effect B) said to be a naturalistic observation C) the result of ethological observation D) said to be reliable - CORRECT ANSWER D) said to be reliable The range is a measure of variance and usually is calculated by determining the difference between the highest and the lowest score. Thus, on a test where the top score was a 93 and the lowest score was a 33 out of 100, the range would be A) 61 B) 77 C) 59 D) more information is necessary - CORRECT ANSWER A) 61 *93-33+1 A sociogram is to a counseling group as a scattergram is to A) the normal curve B) the range C) a correlation coefficient D) the John Henry effect - CORRECT ANSWER C) a correlation coefficient A counselor educator is teaching two separate classes in individual inventory. In the morning class the counselor educator has 53 students in the afternoon class she has 177 students. A statistician would expect that the range of scores on a test would be A) a greater in the afternoon class than the morning class B) smaller in the afternoon class C) impossible to speculate about without more data D) nearly the same in either class - CORRECT ANSWER A) greater in the afternoon class than the morning class *Range increases with sample size The variance is a measure of dispersion of scores around some measure of central tendency. The variance is the standard deviation squared. A popular IQ test has a standard deviation of 15. A counselor would expect that if the mean IQ score is 100, then A) the average score on the test would be 122 B) 95% of the people who take the test will score between 85 and 115 C) 99% of the people who take the test will score between 85 and 115 D) 68% of the people who take the test will score between 85 and 115 - CORRECT ANSWER D) 68% of the people who take the test will score between 85 and 115 Using the data one could say that a person with an IQ score of 122 would fall within A) + or -1 SD of the mean B) the average IQ range C) an IQ score which is more that 2 SD above the mean D) + or -2 SD of the mean - CORRECT ANSWER D) + or -2 SD of the mean The SD is the square root of the variance. A z-score of +1 would be the same as A) 1 SD above the mean B) 1 SD below the mean C) the same as a so-called t-score D) the median score if the population is normal - CORRECT ANSWER A) 1 SD above the mean *Z-scores are the same as SD and z-scores are often called standard scores Z-scores are the same as standard deviations, thus a z-score of -2.5 means A) 2.5 SD below the mean B) 2.5 SD above the mean C) a CEEB score of 500 D) -.05% of the population falls within this area of the curve - CORRECT ANSWER A) 2.5 SD below the mean A t-score is different from a z-score. A z-score is the same as the SD. A t-score however, has a mean of 50 with every 10 points landing at a SD above or below the mean. Thus a t-score of 60 would equal +1 SD while a t-score of 40 would be A) -2 SD B) -1 SD C) a z-score of +2 D) a z-score of +1 - CORRECT ANSWER B) -1 SD an IQ score on an IQ test which was 3 SD above the mean would be A) about average B) slightly below the norm for adults C) approximately 110 D) very superior - CORRECT ANSWER D) very superior A platykurtic distribution would look approximately like A) the upper half of a bowling ball B) the normal distribution C) the upper half of a hot dog, lying on the side over the abscissa D) a camel's back - CORRECT ANSWER C) the upper half of a hot dog, lying on the side over the abscissa Test scores on an exam that fell below 3 SD of the mean or above 3 SD of the mean could be described as A) extreme B) very typical or within the average range C) close to the mean D) very low scores - CORRECT ANSWER A) extreme In WWII the Air Force used stanine scores as a measurement. Stanine scores divide the distribution into nine equal intervals with stanine 1 as the lowest ninth and 9 as the highest ninth. In this system 5 is the mean. Thus a Binet IQ score of 101 would fall in stanine A) 1 B) 9 C) 5 D) 7 - CORRECT ANSWER C) 5 There are four basic measurement scales: the nominal, ordinal, interval and the ratio. The nominal scale is strictly a qualitative scale. It is the simplest type of scale. It is used to distinguish logically separated groups. Which of the following illustrates the function of the nominal scale? A) a horse categorized as a second-place winner is a show B) a DSM or ICD diagnostic category C) an IQ score of 111 D) the weight of an Olympic barbell set - CORRECT ANSWER B) a DSM or ICD diagnostic category *nominal scale has no true zero point and does not indicate order The ordinal scale rank orders variables, though the relative distance between the elements is not always equal. An example of this would be A) a horse categorized as a second-place winner in a race B) an IQ score of 111 C) the weight of an Olympic barbell set D) a temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit - CORRECT ANSWER A) a horse categorized as a second-place winner in a race The interval scale has numbers scaled at equal distances but has no absolute zero point. Most tests used in school fall into this category. You can add and subtract using interval scaled but cannot multiply or divide. An example of this would be that A) an IQ of 70 points below an IQ of 140, yet a counselor could not assert that a client with an IQ of 140 is twice as intelligent as a client with an IQ of 70 B) a 20 lb weight is half as heavy as a 40 lb weight C) a first-place runner is three times as fast as the third-place finisher D) a baseball player with number 9 on his uniform can get 9 times more hits than player number 1 - CORRECT ANSWER A) an IQ of 70 points below an IQ of 140, yet a counselor could not assert that a client with an IQ of 140 is twice as intelligent as a client with an IQ of 70 A ratio scale is an interval scale with a true zero point. Ratio measurements are possible using this scale. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division all can be utilized on a ratio scale. In terms of counseling research A) the ratio scale is the most practical B) all true studies utilize the ratio scale C) a and b D) most psychological attributes cannot be measured on a ratio scale - CORRECT ANSWER D) most psychological attributes cannot be measured on a ratio scale Pg 312 q. 777 - CORRECT ANSWER [Show More]
