    Overkill imo but if you can learn that much then good luck
    I only learn the findings of the study, so maybe that's why? But thanks, good luck to you too

    Guys what actually are type 1 and type 2 errors?

    I know type 1 is false positive (reject null hypothesis when actually true)
    And type 2 is false negative (accept null when it was false) ?
    This correct you answered your own question. Type 1 is due to the significant level being too stringent e.g 1% and type 2 is due to the significant level being too lenient.

    And type 2 is false negative (accept null when it was false) ?
    think of it like this:
    type 1 errors: the researchers are too cocky (they predict that the findings are significant when they are not)
    type 2 errors: the researchers are too modest (they predict that the findings are not significant when in fact they are)

    hope this helps

    Hey all, is it true they can give you 0 for the exam without you knowing just because they suspect cheating for example? I had some doodles and reminders on my hand, on my palm as well, and I am worried sick that the invigilator thought I was cheating
    Were the doodles to do with the exam?

    I think concurrent validity is something to do with comparing the test that was done with a well established test to see if there are correlations.

    No, they were just reminders of what i had to do that day and my candidate number but I am just thinking the invigilator wouldn't have been able to read what it says so may have just assumed it was info for the exam

    (Not needed but it looks good) for bio, psych explanations - You can conclude with the diathesis stress model that argues both nature and nurture as vital in the onset of Sz
    Without the things i mentioned for each essay you cannot move out of a rudimentary/basic band and yes spot on i also use that for my evaluation
