can anyone help me with this. I can't think of anything or explain to me.
Post an example of a simple experiment of your own creation by following this format: I would like to investigate the effects of _____________ on this behavior: _____________. Half my participants would _____________ while the others would _____________.
Independent Variable: _____________
Dependent Variable: _____________
Experimental Group: _____________
Control Group: _____________
Remember: Independent Variable = What the investigator manipulates; the particular treatment or condition the investigator is most interested in the effects of Dependent Variable = What is measured or observed; the "data" collected in the experiment Experimental Group = Those participants exposed to the independent variable Control Group = Those participants treated just like the experimental group EXCEPT they are not exposed to the independent variable; the group with which the experimental group can be compared.
