In what circumstances would you use the within-subjects design and in what circumstances would you use the large N design?

4. Discuss how to minimize the problems of fatigue, boredom, or practice effects in within-subject designs.

5. Since obtaining statistical significance is easier to obtain with a directional hypothesis (one-tailed test) than with a non-directional hypothesis (two-tailed test), why would anyone ever design a study with a nondirectional hypothesis?

6. Explain the purpose of a null hypothesis. Why are both a research/alternative hypothesis and a null hypothesis necessary in statistics?

7. How can internal and external validity be increased in an experiment?
