The following study was made using the experimental research method. The reasons it is an experimental research is two main things.

When it comes to the independent variables the first and most obvious was how the researchers were assigning who in the experiment wore what color.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
