lab and field experiments

Similarities

  • both of the experiment manipulate their independent variable
  • both are reliable

Differences

  • In a labatory experiment participants are aware they are being experimented on hofwever in an field experiment they aren't aware
  • lab exeriment condicted in a controlled setting as field conducted in a natural setting
  • field experiment can be generalised however lab can't be generlised

Overall comparison

overall a field experiment is a better experimental design this is because it is conducted in a natural environment. Field experiment can be generalised this is because in an  field experiment they can generlise the findings in a real life situation.
