Is it wrong to list alot of flaws in a psychological experiment report?
We just finished a psychology experiment, and now have to write up the report. (i was going to copy and paste the discussion but it would not fit).
I listed 3 confounding variables - the age of the participants, the socio-cultural background, and the smal sample size. (these were actual confounding variables that mattered in the experiment. However i also listed a two minor flaws such as language difficulties the participants may have had reading the survey due to language problems, and social desirability (where participants answer surveys to what they think looks most favourable)
In total, i listed 3 confounding variables, and 2 extraneous.
I personally feel that all these flaws are important, the experiment was, in my opinion invalid, and i want to provide reasons to support that.
THankyou for your opinion!
