The ethics section is written in first person, for example "we divide households" and "we run a linear regression". Is this acceptable? alex3yoyo (talk) 02:35, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Geared to strongly towards medical research?
Is the article possibly heard to strongly towards medical research? I'm referring specifically to talk of "treatment conditions" (or is this some neutral jargon that I'm not aware of?)
Also should there be a link to this article from "experiment" which doesn't seem to be aware of the existence of "quasi experiments", just "natural experiments". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 08:58, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Quasi-experiments: to be credible ALL records from start to finish must be disclosed
"Quasi Experiments are also effective because they use the "pre-post testing". This means that there are tests done before any data is collected to see if there are any person confounds or if any participants have certain tendencies. Then the actual experiment is done with post test results recorded. This data can be compared as part of the study or the pre-test data can be included in an explanation for the actual experimental data." -- from the article
