Supportive Submission 3: Published Experimental Design Checklist Comparison

Supportive Submission 3: Published Experimental Design Checklist Comparison

Experimental research seeks to determine if a specific treatment influences an outcome. The researcher assesses this by providing a specific treatment to one group and withholding it from another and then determining how both groups scored on an outcome. Experiments include true experiments, with the random assignment of subjects to treatment conditions, and quasi experiments that use nonrandomized assignments. Use the article from Supportive Submission 1 (if it is an experimental study) or the following study on “Beauty sleep: experimental study on the perceived health and attractiveness of sleep deprived people” which can be found on the following site http://www.bmj.com/content/341/bmj.c6614 to answer the questions on the checklist shown in Table 8.4 page 167. Compare the published article against the Checklist to see if it met all of the procedures listed in the Checklist. I disapprove of the use of quotes in any submitted assignments, paraphrase any borrowed information into your own words and cite accordingly. All written submissions should reflect professionalism in grammar, spelling, writing style/format (one-inch margins, double spaced, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font), include APA 6th citations when appropriate, an appropriate title page, and be uploaded as .doc or .docx documents.
