Topics include: · The advantages of randomisation · How to avoid common design pitfalls that reduce the validity of experiments · How to maintain controlled settings and pilot tests · How to conduct quasi-experiments when RCTs are not an option Practical and succinctly written, this book will give you the know-how and confidence needed to succeed on your quantitative research journey.
