If research continues to indicate that the SAT is biased against students from low socio-economic backgrounds and does not reflect their knowledge or skills, what does that mean for the test psychometric properties?
It means that the test would have high reliability and not so for the validity.
Even though the test may have reliabiltiy because it can be consistent in some of the structure of evaluation. This doesn't mean that it would be a valid test, because it is biased.
The psychometrc propertes are measured both by validity and reliabiltiy. This means the score can be reliable but as it is biased, it is not reflecting the knowlede and skills so it loses it's validity.
Diffusion is: ____A. the movement of a substance across a membrane. B. the movement of a substance by osmosis. C. the movement of substances from an area of low concentration to an area of high concentration. D. the tendency of molecules to move in space due to kinetic energy.
Movement of things from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration through semi-permeable membrane is refereed to as diffusion.

Although Parkinson's disease is one of the most incurable diseases, judicious medications might drastically improve improve the situation positively. Occasionally, doctor may recommend going for surgery to normalize certain parts of your brain thereby improving your state.
Derek likes to bully his little brother Matt. Their mother begins to give Derek the mild punishment of a stern look every time Derek hits Matt. This is sufficient to stop Derek's bullying, and in time, Derek stops bullying Matt even when his mother is not around. According to theories of insufficient punishment, why might this happen?
Because there was insufficient external justification for resisting, Derek began to devalue the forbidden activity
Insufficient theories of punishment are related to the dissonance in which a person feels the lack of sufficient external justification. This is the justification for devaluing for the forbidden things. There was an experiment was done by Aron-son and Carl-smith.
They threaten the child with mild or severe punishment when they play with their favored toys. So that none of the children play with their favored toy when they left alone. But the child who was less threatening has been played with toy more than the children who threatened more.
George Sperling was able to differentiate between the amount of information that could be stored in sensory memory and the time until the memory faded by cuing participants to recallA) an entire visual scene from memory. B) a row of letters in a visual array. C) the first letters of words in a visual array.D) the second of three sentences in a visual array
B) a row of letters in a visual array
The experiment conducted by Sperling was intended to proof the existence of Visual sensory memory and to find out whether this memory have a certain set of duration or capacity between individuals.
In the experiment, He made the subjects to look at a computer and the screen will briefly show a row of letters to the subjects. The result show that The subjects could see the letters and recall them, proving the existence of visual memory. But the duration of this memory is so short since most subjects only capably to remember those letters for a couple of minutes.
Most successful politicians are shrewd and practical in the decisions they make. Therefore Mayor O'Connell will be shrewd and practical in her decisions, since she is a successful politician is an example of:________. a) enumerative induction.b) statistical syllogism.c) causal argument.d) analogy.
Answer:. B) statistical syllogism.
Explanation: Statistical syllogism is an non deductive(an inductive) argument which uses a generalised argument based on a Statistical metric or findings to describe a particular case or situation. Statistical syllogism does not put into consideration the individual case before making a conclusion regarding that case.
THE USE OF A GENERALISED STATISTICAL CONCLUSION ON POLITICIANS TO DESCRIBE MAYOR O'CONNELL WILL BE SHREWD AND PRACTICAL IN HER DECISIONS IS A STATISTICAL SYLLOGISM.
Georgia likes to make tuna fish sandwiches for lunch. She uses her electric can opener and then usually gives the can with a few bits of tuna left inside to the cat as a treat. Georgia recently noticed that the cat comes running into the kitchen every time she uses her can opener to open anything, not just tuna fish. The cat's behavior when it hears the sound of the can opener is a result of:
The cat's behavior when it hears the sound of the can opener is a result of classical conditioning. Classical conditioning is a learning process whereby a conditioned stimulus such as the sound of a can opener becomes associated with an unrelated unconditioned stimulus to produce a conditioned response such as the running of the dog to the kitchen.
The behaviour of George's dog is an example of classical conditioning, the dog now associates the sound of can opener to the making of tuna fish sandwich.

Generally, systems analysts review the work of other systems analysts, and programmers review the work of other programmers, as a form of peer review, in structured walk-throughs.
Explanation: A structured walkthrough is a testing technique carried out in the development process in order to encourage interchange of ideas between peers so as to improve the quality of the final product. This exercise is designed to anticipate and detect as many flaws and defects as possible by peers and discuss how to fix them so as to have the best finished product.
The walkthrough is an organised procedure led by a trained moderator while the developer is also present. It is seen as a formal way of checking the technical aspects of software development, detecting defects and fixing the flaws before a final product which is taken to market.

In the question above, Greta was abusing alcohol.
imagine you are designing a research study that is examining developmental milestones in young children from a dynamic systems theory perspective. Which of the following sets of measures and variables would you want to collect
stimuli present in the home environment, cultural practices, and child factors such as attention
Note that the dynamic system theory perspective uses series of principles and tools to study change. Therefore, to examine the developmental milestones in young children from a dynamic systems theory perspective involves
1. knowing how emotions evolve in time or to identify patterns of change. (that is stimuli present in the home environment,)
2. considering the interaction of the differing emotions (as a results of cultural practices, and child factors such as attention ).
A group of American students switches places with a group of Egyptian students in a foreign exchange program.

When he began drinking alcohol, Patrick would drink two beers after work to feel relaxed. Six months later, Patrick needs to drink a six-pack of beer to feel the same level of relaxation. This illustrates:
Drug tolerance -
It refers to the reduced affect or reaction of any drug , because of consumption of the daily basis or over consumption , is referred to as drug tolerance .
Over use of any drug makes the body resistive to the effect of the drug .
The drugs can be alcohol , smoking , etc.
The drug tolerance gives the extent of drug use .
Hence , from the given scenario of the question ,
The correct answer is drug tolerance .
In a negative feedback mechanism, the response directs the system to operate in a similar direction. For example, if an individual is cold, the negative feedback mechanism would direct the body to become colder. True or false?
The NEGATIVE FEEDBACK MECHANISM is a way for the body to maintain HOMEOSTASIS. That is, the maintenance of a constant internal environment. With a Negative Feedback Mechanism, the body acts in the opposite direction which means that if the body is cold, the response is to make the body warmer.
