For this assignment, again, it is beneficial that you keep the topic you would like to research for the capstone proposal in mind. The capstone will require a literature review for your proposal, of which you may use articles obtained during this course.
Select a peer-reviewed, experimental research study that exemplifies a two-group design (two independent groups design, two matched groups design, or repeated measures design) and a factorial design (use keywords method, results, and discussion in your Boolean search). These studies can be found using tools such as the GCU Library and Google Scholar.
Write a 500-750-word paper in which you:
- Compare the two research designs
- Identify the independent variable(s), dependent variable, and any possible extraneous variable
- Identify main effects and interactions for the factorial design
- Explain if the study has a random sample and/or random assignment? Were there other limitations that were noticed?
