Question:

What does "peer-reviewed" mean, and how do I find sources that qualify as that?

Inactive
Ally H.
Answer:

Peer-reviewed articles are those that have been read and vetted by other professionals in that paper's field of study. That means you can be pretty sure it's a good source to use! Finding peer-review articles is easiest through your school's library, or using an academic search engine like google scholar.

Question:

What is the difference between an emotion and a mood?

Answer:

This can be a tricky distinction! An emotion can be thought of as having a beginning and an end; it's like the weather! One day it might be really sunny, and the next day it's stormy. Emotions come and go and typically don't last very long. A mood, on the other hand, is a more broad term that can be thought of as the "climate." Even when the weather is up and down, you still live in a hot/cool/temperate climate. A mood can last a lot longer than an emotion!

Question:

What is the difference between a Type 1 and a Type 2 error?

Answer:

Great question! A Type 1 error is when a "false-positive" occurs in research. This is where you believe there is an effect of some treatment or variable, but there actually is no effect (i.e. rejecting the null hypothesis when you shouldn't!). A Type 2 error occurs when there is a "false negative" or a "miss" in research. This is where in reality, there is evidence for some effect or treatment, but the data fail to capture it. This is a case where you SHOULD reject the null hypothesis, but don't.
