Unformatted text preview: fication of Experimental Designs Just need to know the overall categories, not the subtypes. Experimental Designs Pre Experimental •One-Shot Case Study •One Group PretestPosttest •Static Group True Experimental •Pretest-Posttest Control Group •Posttest-Only Control Group Statistical •Factorial Design Quasi-Experimental •Time Series •Multiple Time Series 4 Applications • Test Marketing − standard test markets − controlled test markets − simulated test markets People use these a lot in test markets. A test market is the last step in the product development step before you launch a product nationally, you debut it in select cities and see how they react. You fine tune pricing, advertising campaigns, and see how they sell, they send different versions of an ad to different groups. This takes a long time and when they're in the field, competitors can see the new product. Competitive sabotage becomes a big issue, 2 ways it can happen: competitors will buy all the product (so the people testing will think they are really popular when they're not), competitors offer huge promotions that are hard to pass up so no one will buy them (makes the company think the popularity is a lot lower than it really is cause its actual a good product and the competitor wants to have time to launch his product). This is a big problem with standard test markets because they are in the field and can be manipulated. Simulated test markets: this is the new thing, they still run the field experiment but they simulate a store environment in a huge lab so it gets about the same effects. They can create a wal-mart environment, a kroger environment, whatever store they are trying to test for. This keeps competition from sabotaging and they are a lot faster than standard experiment. 5...

    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.
