Experimental method refers to a research method used to uncover cause-and-effect relationships between variables.

In an experiment, the researcher manipulates the independent variable and watches for consequent changes in the dependent variable.


Other /More definition:
Experimental method refers to a research method that involves altering or changing the conditions to which participants are exposed (independent variable) and observing the effects of this manipulation on the participants' behavior (dependent variable).


Other /More definition:

experimental method
the method of choice to study cause-and-effect relationships; the researcher randomly assigns participants to different conditions and ensures that these conditions are identical except for the independent variable (the one thought to have a causal effect on people's responses


Other /More definition:
Experimental method refers to a research technique in which an independent variable is manipulated and a dependent variable is measured.The Experimental method allows a causal inference to be made: Any change in the dependent variable was caused by the manipulation of the independent variable. It is a research method that involves altering or changing the conditions to which participants are exposed (independent variable) and observing the effects of this manipulation on the participants' behavior (dependent variable). Experimental method is the investigation of the causes of behavior through controlled experimentation; a research strategy that allows the researcher to determine cause-and-effect relationships between variables or events.
