Sir Ronald Fisher, the statistician, eugenicist, evolutionary biologist, geneticist, and father of modern experimental design, observed that experiments are ‘only experience carefully planned in advance, and designed to form a secure basis of new knowledge’ (Fisher, 1935: 8). Experiments are characterized by the: (1) manipulation of one or more independent variables; (2) use of controls such as randomly assigning participants or experimental units to one or more independent variables; and (3…
