For this assignment, again, it is beneficial that you keep the topic you would like to research for the capstone proposal in mind. The capstone will require a literature review for your proposal, of which you may use articles obtained during this course.

Select a peer-reviewed, experimental research study that exemplifies a two-group design and a factorial design (use keywords method, results, and discussion in your Boolean search). These studies can be found using tools such as the GCU Library and Google Scholar.

Write a 500-750-word paper in which you:

  1. Compare the two research designs.
  2. Identify the independent variable(s), dependent variable, and any possible extraneous variable.
  3. Identify main effects and interactions for the factorial design.
  4. Explain if the study has a random sample and/or random assignment. Were there other limitations that were noticed?
