Request Description
Select one of the alternating treatments designs that you read about this week, and develop a hypothetical study that uses this method to compare and contrast the effectiveness of two different weight loss techniques. Be creative! Weight, of course, changes too slowly to be useful as a dependent variable in an alternating treatments design, nor is weight a direct measure of behavior. Therefore, do not choose weight itself as your dependent variable, but something truly behavioral such as minutes of exercise or calories eaten. Then, once you have your study designed, answer the following questions about your study. Why did you select this particular alternating treatments design? What are some threats to both the internal and external validity of your design? How might you work around these issues? Describe how, for the purposes of this particular study, the alternating treatments method would be an improvement over the multiple baseline method that you read about last week
