Quiz 4: Nonexperimental Methods: Descriptive Methods, Correlational Studies, Ex Post Facto Studies, Surveys and Questionnaires, Sampling, and Basic Research Strategies

Psychology

Past research on this topic has used primarily convenience sampling. Some studies used probability sampling; however, some of the questions lacked validity and reliability. Furthermore, past researchers failed to assess whether any respondents were gay men, lesbians, or bisexuals. Finally, attitudes toward lesbians have not been assessed using probability samples.

The response rate was 70.1%, which means that there might've been some bias in the sampling (e.g., perhaps people with weak opinions on the topic were less likely to complete the survey). However, a 70% response rate is considered pretty good.

This is an analytic survey. The researchers measured several variables and determined how those variables were related to each other (e.g., how does contact with gay men and lesbians affect attitudes toward gay men and lesbians?).
