A Look at Some Human Studies Fortunately, I also found several human studies on Garcinia Cambogia. All of these studies are so-called randomized controlled trials, which are the gold standard of scientific experiments in humans. The biggest of the studies included 135 overweight individuals, which were split into two groups (7): Treatment group: 1 gram of Garcinia Cambogia Extract, 3 times per day, taken 30 minutes before meals.
Placebo group: The other group took dummy pills (placebo).
Reliability is a necessary ingredient for determining the overall validity of a scientific experiment and enhancing the strength of the results. Debate between social and pure scientists, concerning reliability, is robust and ongoing.
Reliability and Validity. In order for research data to be of value and of use, they must be both reliable and valid. Reliability. Reliability refers to the repeatability of findings. If the study were to be done a second time, would it yield the same results? The answer depends on the amount of research support for such a relationship.
The term reliability in psychological research refers to the consistency of a research study or measuring test. For example, if a person weighs themselves during the course of a day they would expect to see a similar reading. Scales which measured weight differently each time would be of little med383.tk: Saul Mcleod. exploring reliability in academic assessment Written by Colin Phelan and Julie Wren, Graduate Assistants, UNI Office of Academic Assessment () Reliability is the degree to which an assessment tool produces stable and consistent results.
Reliability in research Reliability, like validity, is a way of assessing the quality of the measurement procedure used to collect data in a dissertation. In order for the results from a study to be considered valid, the measurement procedure must first be reliable. Reliability refers to whether or not you get the same answer by using an instrument to measure something more than once. In simple terms, research reliability is the degree to which research method produces stable and consistent results.
