Mini-Study

I did a small study with people going to the dining hall at a certain time. During this time, I made many observations every time I went. Prediction: Students purposely make their schedule around 12-12:30pm to eat lunch and are all hungry at this time. Theory: A majority of the UMW staff and students eat lunch from 12-12:30 pm. Test: During this time, all the tables are occupied when I get there. The lines take about 5-10 minutes to get food in each station. According to Popper’s ideas, this could count as an extreme test, because the hypothesis/theory can be denied various ways.
