Introduction
  • The study of the effects of color has been
    researched prior to 1900

  • A convenience sample of 59 students enrolled in
    various courses at an undergraduate college
  • Participants were voluntary basis as well as
    classroom subjects

Situation 3
  • You have entered one of your paintings in an art
    contest. Your artistic abilities have been
    developing for some time and you have put a lot
    of time and effort into this piece. Further, if
    you should win a 1st or 2nd prize in the contest,
    then you will be invited to have a showing of
    your other works. After the judging, you find
    that your painting has not even received an
    honorable mention.

    your answer sheet.
