Explain how comparison groups, double-blind studies, and other design choices can help researchers avoid many of these threats to internal validity.
Articulate the reasons why a study might result in null effects: not enough variance between groups, too much variance within groups, or a true null effect.
Describe at least two ways in which a study might show inadequate variance between groups, and indicate how researchers can identify such problems.
Explain why large within-groups variance can obscure a between-groups difference.
Describe three causes of within-groups variance—measurement error, individual differences, and situation noise—and indicate how each might be reduced.

1. For his senior thesis, Jack was interested in viewing whether viewing alcohol advertising would cause college students to drink more alcohol. Jack recruited 25 students for a week-long study. On Monday and Tuesday, he had them use a secure website to record how many alcoholic beverages they had consumed the day before. On Wednesday, he showed them a 30-minute TV show interspersed with entertaining ads for alcohol. The students were asked again on Thursday and Friday to report their alcohol consumption. Jack found that students increased drinking after seeing the advertising and concluded that advertising caused them to drink.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
