    An experimental design has its participants sorted into groups, usually a control and experiment group and are randomly assigned. A quasi-experiment is very similar to that of a regular experiment, except that its […]

    I feel like Mr. P’s situation is better left off as a case study rather than as a full on experiment. This is primarily because it may make the subject uncomfortable if they become aware of the fact that they are […]

    Mr. P’s case was interesting in the sense that while it did seem that he had an impairment with his senses, at the same time it did not look like he was disabled at all. In fact, one could say that due to his […]

  • My first hypothesis is that there will be a longer response time if a participant were to take the hard test over the easy test. This is because an easy test is bound to be easier to finish, which would lead to […]
