    • Advantages
      • Lab experiment: control over experiment/ replicate research which means is reliable
      • Field experiment: natural social setting/ real life/ can show hidden meaning
    • Disadvantage
      • Field experiments: cant control the variable/ change in behaviour/ if they aren't aware = ethical issues.
      • Lab experiments: hard to reproduce real social situation/ difficult to isolate single variables/ too many
    • Example
      • Rosenthal and Jacobson (1968): teachers expectation field experiment (self fulfilling prophecy)
        • Higher teacher expectation were responsible for differences in achievemnt
    • Lab experiments
