Discussion 4 – Hypotheses

Share your hypothesis with others in the class, then critique each other…

remember:

Each independent – dependent variable relationship is a hypothesis. A hypothesis will specify the effect of the relationship . For example: “the more social contact a survey responded has had with immigrants, the more accepting they will be of immigrants.” The null hypothesis posits the opposite (or no relationship) and then sees if a relationship exists. Here is an example, “the more social contact a survey responded has had with immigrants, the less accepting they will be of immigrants OR the more social contact a survey responded has had with immigrants shows no difference in how accepting they will be of immigrants”
