Using the guidelines in Chapter 7 design an experiment that could test one of your hypotheses for your research project. Then in the format of an APA style essay answer or do the following: Describe your hypothesis and justify why an experiment is the best for answering this question. Present your independent and dependent variables. [Note that a survey is not the same as an experiment. Surveys can present an experiment design BUT there has to be some type of manipulation and at least 2 conditions (experimental and control)] Describe the “ecology” [the place where it will take place]. Is an experiment based around everyday life, a natural experiment, or is it more controlled/ systematic?  If so,  what kind of comparison is it? [This section is all about ecological validity] Describe how you will select and assign participants to conditions. Describe your experimental design (Between-groups, Within-subjects, or Mixed design). Describe how you will protect your experiment’s internal and external validity.
