Study Guide for Midterm # 2

If you know about the following, based on both Rubin & Babbie and the lectures, you
should perform well on the midterm examination. Remember that I am testing for

Readings Covered

In Textbook:

Measurement

Between Groups Designs

Single Case Designs

Surveys

Unobtrusive Methods

Be comfortable defining and describing: .
