  • How would you precisely, validly, and/or reliably measure your dependent variable?
  • How would you obtain a sample?
  • How would you manipulate the independent variable?
  • Describe practical considerations of doing a quasi-experiment.

Your assignment should be two pages in length, double-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman.
