This subject presents the student with the principle and method of experimental research. Students learn the theory and good practice of designing experiments in the field and test possible options. The subject reviews all the different confounds which can appear in an experimental study (e.g. differential selection into the experimental conditions) and how to ensure that an experimental project delivers the right insights (e.g. power, pre-analysis plan).
