1

Correlational Study

Study of the extent to which one variable is related to another, often referring to non-manipulated variables measured outside the laboratory

2

Experimental Realism

Effect of attention-grabbing, interesting experiment in compensating for artificiality or demand characteristics

3

Field Experiment

Experimentally designed field study

4

Field Study

Study carried out outside the laboratory and usually in the participants' normal environment

5

Group Difference Study

A study that compares the measurement of an existing variable in two contrasting groups categorised by long-term or inherent characteristics such as sex, gender, ethnicity, personality, social class and so on

6

Mundane Realism

Feature of design where experiment resembles everyday life but is not necessarily engaging

7

Natural Experiment

Events beyond researcher's design control but where an IV and DV can be identified

8

Naturalistic Design

Design in which experimenters investigate participants in their everyday environment

9

Observational Study

Research which gathers data by watching and recording behaviour

10

Post Facto Research

Research where pre-existing and non-manipulated variables among people are measured for difference or correlation

11

Quasi-Experiment

Experiment in which experimenter does not have complete control over all central variables

12

Time-Series Design

Design in which behaviour is recorded for a certain period before and after a treatment point in order to look for relatively sudden change

13

True Experiment

Experiment in which the experimenter has completely control over the manipulation of the independent variable and control of all other relevant variables, including random allocation to conditions
