Causal models generally require experimentation.   PTS: 1 DIF: Challenging REF: pg 54-55   3.   Descriptive research can be sub-classified into conclusive research and causal research.   ANS: F Descriptive research and causal research are subsets of conclusive research.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 57   4.   Descriptive studies are often used to determine buyer perceptions of product characteristics and audience  profiles for media, such as television and magazines.   ANS: T From descriptive studies, marketers can learn the characteristics of buyers, their perceptions of product attributes, and their audience profile.   PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: pg 57      © 2013 Cengage Learning.

Product usage studies describe consumption  patterns.   PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: pg 57   6.   Although data regarding a possible association among variables can be used for predictive purposes, these data are not adequate to establish a causal relationship.   ANS: T Just because two variables display an association does not mean that one causes the other.   PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: pg 58   7.   In terms of research, “accuracy” refers to a design that minimizes systematic error and also minimizes the reliability of collected evidence.   ANS: F In designing marketing research, the goal is to minimize systematic error and maximize reliability.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 58   8.   The distinguishing features of a cross-sectional design are that it is intended to be done just once and  participants cannot typically be matched to specific responses or participants in another study.   ANS: T Cross-sectional designs are the most popular and familiar type of research design and involve taking a sample of a population at one point in time.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 58   9.   The main sources of data for causal research are 1) questioning respondents through surveys, and 2) conducting experiments.   ANS: T Although surveys can be used for causal research, experiments can provide stronger support for a causal relationship.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 60   10.   The primary reason experiments are preferred in causal research over surveys of respondents is that, in experiments, key variables can be measured, whereas in survey research the key variables are manipulated.   ANS: F An experimental design is preferred because the variables can be manipulated and not just measured as with survey research.      © 2013 Cengage Learning.

PTS: 1 DIF: Challenging REF: pg 60   11.   Performance monitoring research may involve a special (ad hoc) study or a continuous research  program.   ANS: T The purpose of performance-monitoring research is to track and report relevant changes along marketing-related dimensions. Data is gathered by special (ad hoc) studies or a continuous research  program.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 60-61   12.   Continuous performance monitoring requires a cross-sectional research design.   ANS: F Cross-sectional designs are done ad hoc at a single specific time, whereas longitudinal designs are done over time. By definition, then, continuous performance monitoring requires a longitudinal design.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 61   13.   A traditional panel is a fixed sample of respondents measured over time, although the variables measured are different each time; whereas an omnibus panel is a fixed sample in which the same variables are measured over time.   ANS: F It is the reverse. Both types of panel involve a fixed sample of respondents, but with a traditional  panel, the same variables are repeatedly measured over time, whereas with an omnibus panel, different variables are measured over time.   PTS: 1 DIF: Challenging REF: pg 61   14.   Longitudinal data can be misleading because surveys at two points in time, conducted with different respondents in the sample, can mask even dramatic changes taking place in the population or indicate great changes when none are taking place.   ANS: F It is cross-sectional studies that can be misleading in this way. Because longitudinal data utilizes the same respondents, it is a truer measure of change taking place in the population than multiple cross-sectional studies that use different respondents.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 62   15.   One of the problems that occurs with longitudinal panels is that of unrepresentative sampling, which occurs when the panel does not represent the target population.   ANS: T Because panel members serve long term it is difficult to get individuals to participate, especially in higher income professions. Therefore, it is difficult for the panel to remain representative.      © 2013 Cengage Learning. All Rights Reserved.

PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: pg 64   16.   An advantage of observation methods in collect data is that it allows for the recording of behavior when it occurs and eliminates errors associated with respondents’ recall of behavior.   ANS: T Typically, observing the behavior of respondents is less costly and more accurate than memory recall.   PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: pg 66-67   17.   A valid simulation means that the model's behavior corresponds to the system it is designed to represent.   ANS: T The overriding objective of a simulation is to observe how the simulation units imitate the behavior of the marketing system units that they represent.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 68   18.   Secondary data are collected specifically for purposes of the research needs at hand.   ANS: F Primary data are collected specifically for the research needs at hand. Secondary data are already collected and often published, typically for some other purpose.   PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: pg 69   19.   Services that evaluate television commercials use two basic approaches  —  the recruited audience method and the normal viewing environment method. With the recruited audience method, respondents are recruited and asked to evaluate television ads in their home.   ANS: F With the recruited method, respondents are recruited and brought to a viewing center.   PTS: 1 DIF: Moderate REF: pg 71   20.   One of the “last frontiers” of scanner  -based research is to assess the effects of pricing on purchase  behavior.   ANS: F One of the last frontiers is advertising , because its impact is much more difficult to quantify. Pricing research using scanner data is relatively easy since the price of a product can be modified on a store- by-store basis or even over time.   PTS: 1 DIF: Challenging REF: pg 75   21.   Single sourcing of data is a syndicated marketing research concept that has gained credibility as technology has allowed the gathering of more resources and data under one roof.   ANS: T
