  • Experiment: Strengths and Weaknesses
    • Strengths
      • Can imply cause and effect as we conclude that the effect of the IV causes the results in the DV
      • Standardised controlled procedure means it is easy to replicate and check reliability of measures
    • Weaknesses
      • Cannot control all variables, extraneous variables could affect results ie. noise or distractions
      • Low ecological validity, research is conducted in a unnatural environment
