Posted by Pauline on Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at 8:03pm.

A researcher tested the Hr that reading out loud to your unborn baby will make the baby a better reader later in life. Mothers were randomly assigned to either a silent group in which they read silently during pregnancy at their normal reading times; or an oral group in addition to the normal silent reading the mothers read out loud to their fetus for 2 hours before going to sleep each night. The children were tested at age 7 and the oral group kids instead of reading better, read significantly worse than the silent group kids.

a. name one potential confound in this design
