An Overview of Research Artifacts Supposedly Causing Data Bias.
Dolly, John P.; Tillman, Murray H.
An attempt has been made to show how the problem of data bias had been approached, conceptualized and studied. A review of some of the major studies in the area of research artifacts is presented. Following each major topic, suggestions for future research are discussed. The difficulty in complying with the current APA guidelines on ethics is also examined. Some of the research on experimenter expectancy, experimenter bias, demand characteristics and evaluation apprehension are presented and discussed as causes of data bias. (Author)
