Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Designs for Research in Information Science.
Haas, David F.; Kraft, Donald H.
Information Processing and Management, v20 n1-2 p229-37 1984
This paper examines representative research in information science and compares its designs to an abstract ideal of the experimental research design. Threats to validity of conclusions are highlighted, including history, maturation, testing, instrumentation, statistical regression, selection biases, experimental mortality, and selection-maturation interaction. Lists of 13 references and 31 articles surveyed are provided. (EJS)
