Answer to Question #90976 in Psychology for Prachi

Question #90976
1. You want to know the effects of sleep deprivation on student test marks. As part of the experiment you select a group of 10 students studying Psychology from your classroom and arrange for them to have a disruptive sleep pattern by waking the subjects up every half hour. At 8:00 a.m. they are required to complete a fifty word multiple choice test.
At the same time you selected your first 10 subjects you then select another 10 students from your classroom but ensure they receive a restful sleep prior to completing the same test.

For the above experiment/scenario, please:

i) Independent variable
ii) Dependent variable
iii) Control group
iv) Experimental group

B) List at least 2 possible confounds (i.e. third or extraneous variables) in this experiment that may bias the results (i.e. jeopardize internal validity). Because the scenario doesn’t give you a lot of information, you can be creative (while still being realistic).
