70 POINTS!!! Develop a hypothesis related to psychology and your life at home or at school. Explain how you would go about trying to test and prove (or disprove) the hypothesis. Ensure that you base your hypothesis on a testable question.

2 Answer

  • Hypothesis that can be proved or disproved after testing or collecting the data is called as Testable Hypothesis. One hypothesis that can be applied or tested at home is “Women multitask better than men”.

    To determine whether this is true, ten men and ten women perform a standard set of tasks that require multitasking. We can create a scoring system that measures how well each men or women performs the tasks. The scores can range from 0 to 100.

    If the average score of women is comparatively more than men then we can say that women are better at multitasking than men.

    PLATO ANSWER

    Explanation:

    Hypothesis: In contrast to other times of the day, studying early in the morning helps students easily grasp a given subject matter.

    The basis of this hypothesis is the rationale that it is easier for students to concentrate on a given subject early in the morning instead of during the afternoon, evening, or late at night. The hypothesis is testable because the effect of studying early in the morning is measurable. This hypothesis has two variables: independent and dependent. The independent variable is the practice of studying in the morning, which I (the researcher) can influence during the experiment. The dependent variable is the outcome (i.e., the understanding of a given subject). A change in the independent variable should bring about a change in the dependent variable.

    I can conduct this experiment at home—I have two older brothers and a younger sister who are currently studying for school, and they can be my subjects and part of this research. They can begin the practice of studying early in the morning and continue it for two weeks. At the end of the study, I will check and compare their new test results with past results. An improvement in their scores will support my hypothesis. In contrast, if there is negligible improvement or no improvement at all in their scores, it will disprove my hypothesis.
