  44. Examples of quasi-experimental designs include ___________________.
  45. A design in which participants are measured on a trait they already possess and assigned to categories based on that trait, rather than manipulating the independent variable is the ______________.
  46. The quasi-experimental research design, on the continuum of robustness is usually at one end of the continuum with the correlational design at the opposite end.

  49. The nonequivalent control group design involves a group comparison where the control group is equivalent to the research group.
  50. Since quasi-experimental research is on the continuum of robustness between true experimental design and correlational research:
