Participants must be given the right towithdraw at any time,Participants must be fully informed after thestudy – of what it was about and wheretheir findings fit. Participants must agree to take part and having their data used, knowing as mush as possible about the study (they consent, and it is informed consent). The researcher must be competent to carry out the study.. There must be no deceit – participants must be fully informed.

The research deliberately manipulates theindependent variable (change) whilemaintaining strict control over any othervariable.
WeaknessesStrengths Unnatural situation – Rigorous control over likely to lack validity situation & ppts – can (lack ecological repeat -tested for validity & mudane reliability realism) Controls extraneous Data lacks depth, variables – few detail – reductionist confounding variables method – by looking at the parts the whole Objective & Scientific might not be studied – (use stats) lacks validity
The researcher deliberately manipulates theindependent variable but does this in thesubjects environment
Strengths Weaknesses Careful controls – Control over replicable -tested for extraneous variables reliability is harder than lab exp – possibly more In natural setting - confounding more ecologically valid variables – lack than lab exp validity Less bias from Ethical issues sampling – subjects don’t have to brought to the lab
Cut and sort the statements (there will be oneleft over)
The independent variable is changed bynatural occurrence, the researcher justrecords the effect on the dependent variable
Strengths Weaknesses IV naturally occuring Lack of control - Mudane realism & Ecological Validity No cause and effect as IV not being Research can be directly carried out when manipulated manipulating the IV would usually be Difficult to repeat – unethical or not cant test reliability practical & generalise
