    Compare the three types of research methods and statistics.

    Raskauskas and Stoltz (2007) asked a group of 84 adolescents about their involvement in traditional and electronic bullying. The researchers defined electronic bullying as “…a means of bullying in which peers use electronics (such as text messages, emails, and defaming Web sites) to taunt, threaten, harass, and/or intimidate a peer” (p. 565). The table below is a frequency table showing the adolescents’ reported incidence of being victims or perpetrators of traditional and electronic bullying.

    Using the table below as an example, explain the idea of a frequency table to a person who has never taken a course in statistics.

    Explain the general meaning of the pattern of results.
