In particular, it discusses what constitutes good empirical science and how you should present your results. The first thing worth stressing is that there are no right or wrong empirical results. Empirical results are what they are and you should not be disappointed if they do not show what you had hoped they would. In an ideal world, a researcher comes up with a new theory then carries out empirical work that supports this new theory in a statistically significant way. The real world very rarely approaches this ideal.

Toheeb Adeyemi Unit 5 M3 Asch’s study is a very good example of how people conform to the actions of others, even though they know that what others say or do is not necessarily right. The aim of this study was to discover how much the majority influences the decisions of individuals during a clear task. Would the majority vote influence their own answer to the apparently single option, or would they stick firmly to their view that they knew to be correct? How many individuals in the group would conform? He found out during the 12 most important trials, 36.8% of the answers given by the ‘real’ participants were incorrect, effectively conforming to the wrong answers given by the common associates.
They were confident in their judgement however do admit to experiencing tension and doubt but managed to resist the pressure of conforming. It can be argued that the procedures used in Aschs study are ethically questionable. For example, the study may cause
I agree with the reductions in costs, even in a medical error. I liked the way they conducted the research and how they handled their findings, yet when they found that EMRs did not really prevent medical errors and to not increase patient safety, I had to disagree. If an EMR is correctly formatted and records are kept precisely and consistently, then the safety of a patient would have to increase. EMRs keep track of medication allergies, mental disorders, chronic illnesses, current and pat medications and procedures, all this would be a tool to correctly prescribe, treat and care for a patient, reducing medical errors just by having knowledge of their
The gambling assessment had very low scores for me because ive never really gambled before so my results were very accurate. The questions were created well in order to try and find out if people have an issue with gambling. Not being a gambler myself I do know people who have had a problem with it and ive seen how it can affect peoples life in a very negative way and know that it is important to get help when dealing with this kind of addiction. The shopping assesment reveled that I am at the borderline of having a shopping problem. I however disagree because I know how to manage my money and spend wisely and know I do not have a problem in this area.

Christianson and Hubinette interviewed 58 people from a real life bank robbery and found that those who had been threatened in some way could recall more than those who had just been bystanders. Therefore, this suggests that anxiety can increase EWT accuracy if they are at moderate levels. The people who had been threatened in some way must have had optimum levels of anxiety which increased their accuracy in EWT. Furthermore, the study is high in ecological validity because it was a real life case, therefore it has mundane realism. However, because it was a natural experiment, extraneous variables couldn’t be controlled and so it is possible that these may have affected the accuracy of recall instead of it being anxiety.
Even though the p-value for our Intercept and DAYS increased, it didn’t affect the significance of our model. Getting rid of PAYOR variable didn’t have much of a significant change on our PHYS p-value as it did for our Intercept and DAYS. The overall p-value changed from 2.73E-63 to 1.51E-64, however, the number is still low and there is still a low chance of inaccuracies in this model right now. In order to make this model more accurate, I am going to take PHYS out of the
