Participant Reactivity Thesis

Think about how participants might react to environmental cues in an experimental situation and create a hypothetical study on assertiveness.

It is important for you to remember that the study should not be designed to test participant reactivity.

Summarize the study in a few sentences, and explain how some specific items in the laboratory environment in your made-up study might cause participants to respond in a particular way.

What could be done in your study to reduce participant reactivity?
