What are some approaches to establishing estimates? What are some problems with these approaches? → Scientific Method
Experimental Design (Independent vs. Dependent Variables)
The major advantage of the Experimental Design is that it enables the researcher to demonstrate a causal relationship between the Independent Variable (IV) and the Dependent Variable (DV).
The major disadvantage is that it is often impossible, impractical, or unethical to manipulate the Independent Variable (IV).
Internal (random assignment) vs. External Validity (random selection)
Quasi Experimental Design
Advantage: The quasi-experimental design can be used when it is impossible, impractical, or unethical to manipulate the IV.
Disadvantage: Since a quasi-experimental design does not involve random assignment to groups, the Independent Variable (IV) is not truly manipulated, and so a causal relationship between the IV and DV cannot be fully inferred.
Correlational Design: determines the relationship between two variables.
Provides information that is useful in making predictions about future behavior.
Generate hypotheses to be tested with more sophisticated designs.
One can never infer causation from a correlation because...
The direction of the cause is often unclear; and
It is possible that a third variable causes both variables.
