Design Problem Scenarios Assignment


There are great scientific fallacies in the scenarios provided with most conducting false experiments and procedures. From flawed measurement to inappropriate generalization, the demonstrations have very high errors, and these errors misinformed the scientists/ researchers. It is this flaws that I have identified and in some cases provided better alternatives.

Provided Scenarios

The O’Connell study conducted in 2011 was very inaccurate, and great confounds are present in the experiment conducted in regards to scouting. In determining the contribution scouting has in the later life of an individual, she measured the scouting participation of 12-year-old girls and contrasted it with age 40 of the Urbano Socioeconomic Success Scale. This is a flawed approach to understanding the effects of scouting on an individual. The claim he makes is inaccurate as the proper procedure would have been to, contrast 12-year-old scouting participation with success attained by 40-year-old former scouts.

The researcher at Old Dominion University on the effects of noise on plants is inaccurate due to flawed measurement. The plants that were exposed to a hundred decibels of white sound were exposed to it for a week and a half continuously. This is a very wrong approach as a hundred decibels of white noise only occurs continuously in rare circumstances and scenarios. They are making the experiment an inaccurate depiction of normal conditions.

The psychologist’s experiment is significantly flawed because it makes an inappropriate generalization. When the students failed in their fifth task, he had no variables in place to determine the reason for their failure. He just used the result of the experiment to justify his claims even though the entire investigation was conducted wrongly. His findings are not to be trusted.

The researcher’s conclusion that any modeling opportunity will produce better learning of difficult concepts than non-modeling learning procedures has significantly been generalized. This is because of the class that the research is based upon underinformed the non-modeling students. If they were to be provided with better instructions, then their result will also improve. Analysis from this inaccurate experiment cannot be used to validate the researchers claim.

Based on the advertisement by Bacardi, personally not having ever drunk a martini before in my life, the prospects they offer are very compelling. After reading their announcement, I would consider making a martini as a refreshment for my guests. Mixing Bacardi with the martini as I have now realized will make the entire martini smooth to the drinker. This will be a great drink especially when my guests and I engage in communications as the choky effect in most alcoholic beverages will not be present.


In my workplace, our boss set out to experiment to attain precisely how hard we work. He introduced a sheet in the office that we occasionally had to sign whenever we came to work and when we left. He subsequently got a detailed analysis of how many hours we spent at the office. Using this he determined the most hardworking individuals in our organization and also the least hardworking ones. The experiment, however, has a great fallacy as the amount of time an individual spends at the office does not correspond with the amount of work he handles. An individual may spend less time at the office but do more job than an individual who spends more extended hours at the office.
