Rizwan Alam Period 5 FBQ An Advantage of Case Studies is that they provide in depth, detailed information about the

case, person, or the functional unit of person, which is being studied. An advantage of correlation is that they are rapid to describe a relationship between two variables. They are the best tool for the researchers, because they are fast, collect a lot of data, save time and probably the biggest benefit would be that this method doesn’t cost a lot of money. An Advantage of the experiment method is that they manipulates one or more factor and observe the effect of a person’s behavior and mind. They have high internal validity, or increased confidence that the IV influences the DV. A disadvantage of Case studies is the possibility of being led to the wrong direction, all they do is give us an idea or form another theory, but its mistaken judgments can take us to false conclusions. A disadvantage of the Correlation method is that they cannot be used as a source to describe cause and effect of relationships or the direction of the casual influence. A disadvantage to experiments is that there is a slightly possibility statistical bias. When selecting a case for a case study, researchers often use information-oriented sampling, as opposed to random sampling because an average case may not have the essential information. Three approaches or methods, can be taken to find out the effects of Vitamin J on memory. Case Study: A study of one person or a functional unit such as family, organization, etc may be done i.e. giving tasks to test the efficiency of the memory of the person taking or consuming vitamin J. However a different approach might be taken; and an intensive examination such as an interview of records or information related to the person or unit being studied. Correlation: This study often used to show relationship between Vitamin J and memory. Vitamin J being the Independent variable while memory being dependent on the amount of Vitamin J consumed. The correlation of scatter plot shows that Vitamin J helps in memory and efficiency of neurons. A survey might be done to achieve data of People using Vitamin J and their memory compared to the people not consuming the Vitamin J. A measurement of vitamin J and memory without manipulation of Vitamin J might be taken too. Experiment. This study evaluates the effects of vitamin J (daily for 3 months) on memory in certain healthy group of young people. Effects were compared with 38 controls who received placebo and were matched for age, plasma pyridoxal-5-phosphate (PLP) concentration and intelligence score and memory. Random assignment of participants to conditions. Administration of Vitamin J or the manipulation of the vitamin J variable. An experiment done with a control and matching the experiment with the control one for example matching participants that took Vitamin J in their diet to the ones who didn’t not, or changing environmental conditions for the group might be a key factor to it.
