Experimental versus non experimental design

2 Mar

Today in class we reviewed different types of experimental and non-experimental studies.

What make an experiment, an experiment?  What is random assignment? What is a longitudinal study or case study?

Then I offered the class the following questions and they formed into groups and selected one.  How would they design a study to answer the question?

1) DO BLONDS HAVE MORE FUN?

2) DOES SUNSHINE LEAD TO HAPPINESS?

3) DOES LACK OF SLEEP INFLUENCE STRESS LEVELS?

4) DOES EXERCISE LEAD TO WEIGHT LOSS?

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 4: Select one of these questions that you did not address in your group.  Design a study to answer the question.

a) Is your study a real experiment? Why or why not?

b) What are limitation to your study?

c) How do  you propose obtain consent for your study?

d) What are potential confounds in your study? What do you propose to do about these?

Post your answers here. Come to class on Tuesday ready to tell us about your study!
