Distinguish between direct hypothesis and non-direct hypothesis and give an example of each?
Direct hypothesis states how a person thinks the result will be. The hypothesis compares two variables/groups or conditions and states which one will have quicker or slower, more or less and etc. Example of an experiment study: the study may state that the participants who were sleep deprived for 24 hrs will have more cold symptoms in the following week after exposure to a virus than the participates who were not sleep deprived.
Non-direct hypothesis simply states that there will be a difference between the two variables/groups or conditions. It will not state which one will have the quicker or slower result. Example of an experiment study: The study will state that there will be a difference between the number of cold symptoms in the following week after exposure to a virus between the participants who are sleep deprived for 24 hours with who are not.
