Criminal justice

Directions: Read the article by Carnahan and McFarland (2007) and answer the following questions.

Carnahan and McFarland, 2007 (revisiting Stanford Prison Experiment; SPE).pdf

1. What is the main research question investigated in the study? Hint: you can probably infer it from the abstract.

2. Where did the study try to recruit participants? Hint: see p. 607 of the article.

3. What were the two different ways the authors used for recruiting participants for the study? Hint: see p. 607 of the article.

4. What type of sampling would you say this is? Hint: was there a random selection from a list (sampling frame) representing the population of interest? If yes, it’s probability sampling. If not, it’s non-probability sampling. To answer this question, identify the specific type within the probability or non-probability sampling.

5. Which psychological characteristics of the participants have the authors measured (that were not measured in SPE)? Hint: see p. 606 of the article for descriptions.

6. Choose one of these psychological characteristics and describe it in your own words (DO NOT copy and paste the description from the article). How was it actually measured in the study? Hint: descriptions of traits being measured are on p.606 but the description of the actual way they were measured are on pp. 607-608, at the end of the Method section.

7. Looking at the results of the study now, which three psychological characteristics would you say differed the most between the two groups of participants? Hint: see Table 1 on p. 608 of the article. Traits that differed most substantially have the largest absolute value of t (last column of the table).

8. How does the article explain the SPE results? What is different about this interpretation compared to Zimbardo’s original interpretation?

9. Has your opinion about Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment changed after reading Carnahan and McFarland’s article? What do you think about it now?
