What are the variables in this study? What are some extraneous variables that might impact this research? How would we control for those extraneous variables?
What research design would we use to study this hypothesis? Why? What data collection techniques would we use to study this hypothesis? Why?
Assuming that we get a correlation of r=-.60, what does this tell us about the strength and direction of the correlation between satisfaction and calling in sick to work?
What are some potential problems we might encounter, and what strategies would we use to minimize these?
