Write a 3–4-page assessment in which you compare the similarities and differences in the sampling, methodologies, and findings of selected research studies.

Assessment Instructions

Locate two scholarly articles. One article should be about a true experiment and the other about a quasi-experiment. Carefully review both articles for use in this assessment.

Write a 3–4-page assessment comparing the similarities and differences of the following items in the research studies:

  • The research question (hypothesis), design, and findings.
  • The sample: What are the differences in sampling between the two different studies?
  • The methodology: How did the methodology (pre-experimental versus experimental) differ between the two studies?
  • The findings.

Be sure to include details about the defining features of each study. What makes it either experimental or pre-experimental? In the case of the pre-experimental design, why was this design necessary?
