Merge?[edit]

Why do we have Quasi-experiment and Design of quasi-experiments? Should they be merged? Tayste (edits) 00:22, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes Thosjleep (talk) 00:06, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes there is almost total overlap71.208.252.27 (talk) 15:39, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I dunno why there are separate pages either. I doubt anyone's going to object, so whoever wants to can probably just go ahead and do it. --V2Blast (talk) 03:19, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Bnadrow (talk) 16:11, 21 February 2013 (UTC) I'm going to begin editing this page. I am a student at Clemson University working with Dr. June Pilcher's Senior Psychology class.

  • Yes, I also believe that they should be merged. (Elena Loysha)

Use of first person in Ethics[edit]

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?[edit]

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 220.233.65.12 (talk) 08:58, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Quasi-experiments: to be credible ALL records from start to finish must be disclosed[edit]

"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
