4. What is one strength of lab experiments and a weakness of field experiments

  • In a lab you have less control over sitational variables those meaning you results are more representative than in a field where you have little control over sitational variables.
  • In a field you have little control over the situational variables so your results may be signifcantly affected and not be represenative due to this effect., where as in al ab this cant happen do to higher levels of control over SV's.
  • in a lab you have more control over situational variables so high levels of precision are achieved, where as precision levels are lower in a field experiment.
  • In afield experiment you have more control over situational variables so higher precision levels than a lab where you have less control.

5. What is a strentgh of qualitative date and a weakness of quantative data>
