Solutions

Chapter 7, Problem 10E
To determine

If there is no control group still it is called experiment, and if there are no control extraneous variables, still will it be termed as an experiment

Solution:

An experimental design is the one where the following two aspects are sure to happen:

  • The independent variable is manipulated in the experimental research
  • The dependent variable is measured under controlled environment
Thus the two important characteristics that a research must qualify are manipulation of independent variable and control on the other factors to measure the dependent variable

Control group: in an experiment design control group is the group that receives no treatment; it just serves as a benchmark for the other groups, to evaluate their performance with respect to the control group.
