Control of practical experiment?

Postby Butterfly90 » Wed Oct 09, 2013 11:44 am

I am really struggling with this. I have my consent form done so I am ready to go but I don't understand how it is possible to be able to control this experiment. My subjects are going to be chosen through opportunity sampling basically anyone I can find so that means the experiment will be done in different conditions.

Thanks

But they are all going to have the same time to complete the test and the same apparatus, so these are controls. You are going to ask them to do the experiment in a quite room etc again these are all controlling for extraneous variables.

Hope that this helps
