Factorial designs have become increasingly more popular because they can show a better picture of the complexity of behavior. In 300 words or more, think of a social issue within your local community that you could investigate using a 2 x 2 factorial design.
Describe the social issue and explain why a facorial design would be a good choice for your investigation.
Identify the independent variables that you will be using and then describe what would be in each cell.
Does this design contain any participant variables? Why or why not?
How can a factorial design impact external validity?
