What Is Random Assignment?

By , black-rose-bielefeld.de Guide

Definition:

Random assignment refers to the use of chance procedures in psychology experiments to ensure that each participant has the same opportunity to be assigned to any given group. Study participants are randomly assigned to different groups, such as the experimental group, or treatment group. Random assignment might involve such tactics as flipping a coin, drawing names out of a hat, or assigning random numbers to participants.
