I've been asked to practice writing statistical questions about different topics by conducting a survey or experiment. I understand how to write them by conductin a survery but having trouble understanding what is meant by experiment. For instance of of the topics is "music". What would be a statistical question that could be answered about music by conducting an experiment? thanks..
You could ask a group of students to memorize some terms and their definitions. If you have three different groups, you could play three completely different kinds of music for each group. Then test the students on these terms. Which group did best? Which the poorest. Does the kind of music played help or hinder their learning?
