[q] one paragraph summary of an article that appears at the beginning of an article [textentry] [c] abstract [a] Yes, the abstract is at the beginning of the article and briefly summarizes the study's key elements. [c]* [a] Sorry, the correct answer is Abstract.

[q] explains why the hypothesis should be tested [textentry] [c] introduction [a] Yes, you were right. The introduction tells us what the hypothesis is, why it makes sense, and why it should be tested. [c]* [a] No, the correct answer is the introduction.

[q]tells whether the data support the hypothesis [textentry] [c] results [a] Good job. The results section deals with figuring out whether the results support the hypothesis. [c]* [a] No, the results section is where we learn whether the results support the hypothesis.

[q] interprets the results and explains their importance[textentry] [c] discussion [a] Yes, in the discussion section, the authors discuss the study and explain the value of their study.

[q] variation on a study that improves the construct validity[textentry] [c] conceptual replication [a] Well done! The conceptual replication is the most sophisticated kind of replication. [c]* [a] You should have said conceptual replication [q] minor variation of a study, sometimes done to improve power or external validity[textentry] [c] systematic replication [a] Yes, in the systematic replication, the researcher may make one systematic change to the study, such as studying a different type of participant. [c]* [a] No, the correct answer is systematic replication.

[q] any type of study that repeats another study [textentry] [c] replication [a] Right! As the name suggests, replications try to replicate (repeat) other studies to some degree. [c]* [a] Sorry, the correct answer is replication [/qdeck]
