· You will share your screen and point out the portions of the graphs as you discuss them. You can also merely display the graph or create a PowerPoint presentation.

Does the design show experimental control? Explain why there is or is not experimental control. You will learn how to do this when we review “POVs” (prediction, observation, and verification which will be discuss in synchronous class on week 6 prior to the presentations)

### Experimental design: What is it and when should it be used?

Experiments are an excellent data collection strategy for social workers wishing to observe the effects of a clinical intervention or social welfare program. Understanding what experiments are and how they are conduct is useful for all social scientists, whether they actually plan to use this methodology or simply aim to understand findings from experimental studies. An experiment is a method of data collection designed to test hypotheses under controlled conditions. Students in my research methods classes often use the term experiment to describe all kinds of research projects, but in social scientific research, the term has a unique meaning and should not be used to describe all research methodologies.
