Elements of experimental design Statistical studies can be classified as being either experimental or observational. In a designed experimental , the analyst controls the specification of the treatments and the method of assigning the experimental unites to treatment. In an observational experiment , no attempt is made to control the factors. The analyst simply observes the treatments and the response. Cause-and-effect relationships are easier to establish in designed experiments than in observational experiments.

An Introduction to Experimental Design A factor is a variable whose effect on the response is of interest to the experimenter. Also called independent variable. The response variable is the variable of interest. Also called dependent variable. The treatments of an experiment are the factor level combinations used. Experimental units are the objects on which response and factors are collected. A completely randomized design is an experimental design in which the treatments are randomly assigned to the experimental units. The factor levels are the values of the factor utilized in the experiment.

Two factor golf experiment Suppose the USGA is interested in comparing the mean distances the four brands of golf balls travel when struck by a five-iron and by a driver. Ten ball of each brand are randomly selected, and five to be struck by a five-iron and five to be struck by the driver. Identify the elements of the experiment, and construct a schematic diagram to provide an overview of this experiment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
