Hi

First you need to decide if this is an experimental method or non experimental method - the presence of an IV and DV ususally gives a good clue about this.

You can then talk about the type of experimental or non experimental method this is if you look at things in more detail

For instance - experimental methods could be a lab experiment, field experiment or a quasi experiment
Non experimental methods could be an observation, correlation, interview

Hope this helps
