and thank you for all the help. However, I just need to ask if questions #9 through#15 can be answered? Your help on this is highly appreciated.
11. -15. Go to the text for Thinking by Kirby and Goodpaster. Thinking Activity 10.3. Determining the Research Design The following are titles of real news articles. Place an "E" before those articles in which you think the researcher used an experimental or quasi-experimental study and a "C" before those in which you think the researcher used the ex post facto or correlational design. In those cases in which you think either approach might have been used, you may indicate both "E" and "C." To help you with your thinking, ask yourself if an experimental approach to these topics, in which the researcher creates the treatment differences between groups, would be unethical or extremely impractical. 11.___C__Lead Exposure, Laziness Linked to Alzheimer's 12.___C_ More Evidence That Smoking Moms Have Smoking Kids 13.___E_ Vegetables Lower Prostate Cancer Risk 14. ___E_ Vitamin E May Help Ease Menstrual Cramps 15. ___E_ Acupuncture Helps Relieve Depression
Since it is unethical to set up experimental designs that could cause harm to subjects, (lead poisoning, making Mom smoke) These are almost definitely correlational studies after the fact. The others could be determined by experiement.
Once again, I can see your willingness to help but would you be able to answer questions 9 and 10 please?
Thanks in advance.
