Experiment with caffeine and memory

The idea that caffeine effects memory is not a testable experimental hypothesis. As a result, this job converts the idea into a testable hypothesis, which is a precise prediction. It then devises and sets up an appropriate hypothesis and offers an experiment structure and results system calculations.

Solution Preview

In order to turn the theory that caffeine affects memory into a testable hypothesis, you need to make a specific prediction that includes an operational definition. Here is one way you might approach this. Devise a memory task that you can give to participants in your experiment. This might be something as simple as first reading a list of words and then (perhaps after some time delay) writing down as many of the words from the list as one ...

Solution Summary

This job helps to turn the theory that caffeine affects memory into a testable hypothesis. It devises a sample memory task and offers ways of manipulating the independent variable (caffeine).
