Week 4: Pros and Cons. Vote here!

We’ve got two major decisions to make this time around…

First, we have to decide whether our study will be within-subjects or between-subjects.

Within-subjects experiments have one participant complete multiple conditions and then compares the participant’s performance in one condition against their performance in the other condition.

Between-subjects experiments have one participant complete only one condition and then compares the performance of the two groups.


Second, we have to decide whether we want to include a third condition in our experiment.

The third condition under consideration would be a “no speech” condition. Participants would not name the object internally or verbally, instead trying to memorize the objects themselves. After looking at the objects, the participant would list as many objects as possible.


Think about which options you would pick. Then, click here to vote on what you think is best for our experiment!
